DAVE GROHL is writing a song with NANDI BUSHELL, the 10-year-old British girl he had drum battles with earlier this year. In FOO FIGHTERS news, on Saturday, November 14th at 5pm Pacific Time, the band will be regrouping to rock your living room, when they play a full set streamed live from the Roxy in Hollywood for any and all who buy a ticket for $15 here. But, if you can’t be in front of a TV, tablet, phone, laptop etc. at exactly that time, don’t worry: Ticket buyers will have access to replay the full stream for 48 hours from the start of the show. Limited event merchandise will be available here. This streaming concert event is brought to you in part by Coors Light, and will feature innovative new technology custom created for this one of a kind Foo Fighters show: Beer’s Eye View. For 25 years, Coors Light has been on stage – and in hand – with Foo Fighters. Now for the first time, Beer’s Eye View will take fans behind the scenes backstage, into the thick of the action onstage, and to the best seat in the house (the VIB a/k/a Very Important Beer section)—all from the unique perspective of a live “Can Cam” attached to Dave’s own Coors Light. A portion of proceeds from Foo Fighters’ Roxy streaming show will go to Sweet Relief. Founded in 1993 by Victoria Williams, Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
