The Foo Fighters are teasing a show in Los Angeles this Saturday night January 10th. They have been promoting their new album and HBO Docu-series"Sonic Highways" where they have been performing at each city that is featured in the series.
L.A. would be the only city where the Foo Fighters have performed twice. They did Texas twice but two different cites.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Palladino's? The Viper Room? Somewhere bigger? Hopefully it will be open to all fans and not a contest like the KROQ Roxy show late last year. Perhaps the Wiltern and a first come first serve line-up situation? Stay tuned!
The Foo Fighters appeared on The Howard Stern Show to promote "Sonic Highways" and the conversation switched to PRINCE covering "The Best Of You" during his Super Bowl Appearance and then for about 5 minutes.
Dave Grohl talked about just how amazing Prince is.
The Prince talk begins about 15:40 in.
Grohl talks about rehearsing "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin and Dave thinks that Prince blew him off to perform it live. That is NOT true.
Dave, if you are reading this, he did not call you out the following week but he did look for you at other shows and thought you were there and was trying to call up the person he thought was you but his security guard let him know it was not you. True story. In fact, the security guard is now your guard and can confirm this if you ask him.
Also, someone has the footage of the rehearsal of "Whole Lotta Love" but it is misplaced right now.
Dave talked about Prince's recent W Hotel walk on performance that went viral this week. Howard had to talk about the last time he saw Prince and a majority of the show being performed in the dark. Howard needs to bring this up every time he talks about Prince.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Props to Dave and Howard, here is hoping Beth takes you to another Prince show where the lights are on buddy.
Don't miss this week's PRINCE Spreecast!
