Foo Fighters Announce Special “Surprise” Show


When you’re a big rock star, how would you like to spend your birthday?

On an island? With your family?

How about performing for your fans?

Dave Grohl and the rest of the guys from the Foo Fighters will be doing just that this upcoming weekend to celebrate the frontman’s birthday.

The band revealed yesterday afternoon that they will be performing a “surprise” concert this Saturday to celebrate Grohl’s 46th birthday a couple of days early. The show is scheduled to happen on Saturday, Jan. 10 while Grohl’s actual birthday is Wednesday, Jan. 14.

According to a press release for the gig, the show will be performed “in-the-round’ style meaning the band will be performing in the middle of the audience, instead of up on a stage away from the crowd.

Tickets for the gig went up on sale yesterday at 7 p.m. and cost $50 each. Ten of the $50 from each ticket will be donated to three charities: the Rock School Scholarship Fund, MusiCares, and Sweet Relief.

While the show was just announced, we’re pretty sure that ticket are close to being sold out, if they aren’t already sold out.

This birthday “surprise” show is the band’s first official show of the new year. Next week, they will be heading to South America to begin their massive stadium tour.
