Dave Grohl is throwing himself a big, charitable birthday party in Los Angeles this weekend. “Dave’s Rock & Roll Club” will hold its inaugural meeting Saturday, January 10 at the Forum in Los Angeles, and will feature a Foo Fighters performance “in the round,” meaning the band will be entirely surrounded by fans—albeit ones behind barricades. Tickets are $50, $10 of which will be spread amongst three charities: Rock School Scholarship Fund, MusiCares, and Sweet Relief. Of course, tickets—which went on sale last night—are already sold out.


The Forum gig marks the Foos’ first show of 2015. They’ll be playing bigger arena and stadium shows later this week, and their full slate of dates is below.
