Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players might be in Australia sooner than you think… Much sooner! Earlier this month, reports broke that Grohl’s all-star band will be performing in Sydney, although no official dates, venues or additional shows were announced at the time, nor have they been since. Now, though, Music Feeds has gotten wind of some potentially exciting news – Sound City Players could be in Australia as soon as next week to play a show in Perth this coming Monday, 4th March.
This possible knowledge bomb comes by way of Sound City Players member Corey Taylor. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman stopped in at Music Feeds Studio to break down Stone Sour’s upcoming record, House of Gold & Bones – Part 2 and during the chat we took the opportunity to inquire as to whether Taylor would return to Australia later this year as part of Sound City Players.
In response, Taylor said he’s unsure if he would be available but offered up a glimmer of hope, indicating Sound City Players could very well reach Australia while Taylor is still in country:
“I don’t know to be honest, I’ve got so much going on. Though I think they’re doing a show in Perth the same day that the Soundwave Festival is going on… So maybe you’ll see me there.”
Of course, Taylor is touring Stone Sour with Soundwave, putting him in the right place at the right time to take part in this potential supergig.
A recent report by NME has Grohl currently placed in LA to begin work on a new Foo Fighters album, but his Sound City Players have established a rep for giving relatively little notice before announcing their shows. Of course, with a line-up that has so far included members of the Foos, Nirvana, Brad Wilk of RATM, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, John Fogerty along with Corey Taylor and others, this would take a mere matter of minutes to sell out.
Take this as a rumour for now, but don’t be surprised if you see confirmation some time in the next few days. Our interview with Corey Taylor will be on Music Feeds soon!
