The Foo Fighters are set to give a mystery song its live debut at a post-Super Bowl virtual reality concert.
Dave Grohl and co have announced an “immersive 180-degree VR concert,” coming to Facebook (Meta) following Super Bowl LVI on Sunday (2/13/22).
And fans are in for a treat, as the “Everlong” rockers have announced they’ll be performing a song they’ve never performed live before.
In a statement, the 53-year-old frontman said: “The Foo Fighters love a challenge – playing on the biggest stages in the world, in the smallest clubs, making movies and mini-series.
We have done almost everything. But we never collaborated with Mark Romanek on a concept set of songs (including one performed live for the first time) for a global audience.
“Join us when we cross this one off the FF bucket list!”
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters has a comedy horror movie on the way.
The ‘Walk’ hitmakers – also including Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee – have secretly made ‘STUDIO 666’, which will see them star opposite Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman and Jenna Ortega.
The film is set in a California mansion “set in macabre rock and roll history”, where the band have moved to record their 10th album, but frontman Dave is “creatively stuck” and things take a turn when the ” “evil forces” of the house flow into his consciousness.
Open Road Films has secured the rights to the project, and it will hit theaters on February 25.
Dave – who wrote the story on which Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes based their screenplay – said in a statement: “After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to move on to next level… A horror-comedy feature film.
“Like most Foo things, ‘STUDIO 666’ started with a wacky idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible.
“Filmed in the same house where we recorded our last album ‘Medicine at Midnight’ – I told you this place was haunted! – we wanted to recapture the classic magic of all our favorite rock and roll movies, but with a twist. : hilarious gore this f****** rocks.
“And now, with the help of Tom Ortenberg and the team at Open Road Films, we can finally get this cat out of the bag after keeping it a secret for two years. Be ready to laugh, scream and headbang into your “STUDIO 666″ popcorn will fuck you up.”
“Hatchet III” director BJ McDonnell will direct the film.
The former Nirvana drummer previously admitted the band were “frightened” when they recorded their last album ‘Medicine at Midnight’ at the 1940s abode.
