Dave Grohl to bring Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, and more to SXSW
It looks like Dave Grohl won't be rolling solo to SXSW. The rocker is bringing an all-star concert to Austin the same evening as his keynote speech with an exclusive show, "Sound City Players at SXSW," at Stubb's. The concert will be in support of the "Sound City" documentary and its accompanying soundtrack, "Sound City: Real To Reel," which will be released two days prior on March 12.
Confirmed performers include Grohl, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear, Rick Nielsen, Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Chris Goss of Masters of Reality and Alain Johannes. The Meat Puppets will be the opening act.
Tickets for the event will go on sale Tuesday, March 5, at 4 p.m. ET to Citi consumer credit and debit cardmembers as a complimentary gift with a $25 purchase of the "Sound City" feature documentary Blu-Ray on CitiPrivatePass.com. Purchases will be limited to two per Citi member on a first-come, first-served basis. Select admission will be available to SXSW badgeholders via lottery. All attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of the soundtrack, courtesy of Citi.
