Grohl in For Handler This Week
Foo Fighters frontman and documentary filmmaker Dave Grohl is taking a week out of his busy schedule to be the guest host on Chelsea Handler's E! talk show Chelsea Lately. According to Loudwire, Grohl was set to begin his run on Monday night (February 4th) and fill Handler's shoes for the rest of this week, ending his stint on Friday (February 8th). Grohl's guest list for the week was scheduled to include Rick Springfield, Elton John and Tenacious D.
This isn't Grohl's first time sitting in for Handler. He was the guest host last December 6th and proved himself a natural in front of the camera, at ease with the audience, the guest panel and interview subject Ray Romano. He has also been a guest on the show himself in the past.
Last week Grohl announced the "first and only ever" New York City show by his Sound City Players, set for February 13th at Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday (February 5th) at 4:00 p.m. ET for the concert, which will feature appearances from Sound City Players regulars Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk, Queens Of The Stone Age's Alain Johannes plus members of Nirvana and Foo Fighters.
Grohl's documentary, Sound City, is now showing in limited theaters and on VOD and is available to order on DVD.
