Foo Fighters Frontman Dave Grohl Hosting ‘Chelsea Lately’ for Entire Week
Musician/director/actor Dave Grohl is branching out in yet another direction. Two months after serving as guest host of Chelsea Handler’s E! talk show ‘Chelsea Lately’ for one night, he’s now set to host the program for the entire week, starting tonight (Feb. 4).
Not surprisingly, the guest list is heavy with musicians. Grohl will interview Rick Springfield tonight (Feb. 4), Elton John on Wednesday and Tenacious D on Thursday. Grohl appeared as Satan in the 2006 movie ‘Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny.’ Tuesday’s guest is yet to be announced. See the schedule here.
In addition to a main interview guest each night, the Foo Fighters frontman will be discussing current events with a roundtable of comedians, including John Caparulo, Natasha Leggero, Josh Wolf and Jo Koy.
Grohl has also been keeping busy with his ‘Sound City‘ documentary. In addition to screenings and film festivals, he has been putting together live shows of musicians featured in the film. The Sound City Players played two memorable three hour shows at the Sundance Film Festival and in Los Angeles.
The next Sound City Players concert is slated for New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom Feb. 13. The lineup changes from show to show, and in New York Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates will be joined by Nirvana‘s Krist Novoselic, Queens of the Stone Age‘s Alain Johannes, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Cheap Trick‘s Rick Nielsen, Rage Against the Machine‘s Brad Wilk, Fear’s Lee Ving and Masters of Reality’s Chris Goss.
Tickets for the New York show go on sale tomorrow (Feb. 5) at 4PM ET. Grohl’s ‘Sound City’ movie is currently screening in select theaters and is also available for purchase online here. The soundtrack for the movie hits stores on March 12.
