Dave Grohl Goes Solo At Joe Walsh’s Veterans Benefit Concert

Dave Grohl will play a solo set at Joe Walsh’s ‘VetsAid’ veterans benefit show later this year.

The Foo Fighters frontman is announced as a “special guest” at the event, which will take place at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on November 13. He is joined on the bill by Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys and The Breeders.

Walsh’s band, the James Gang, along with drummer Jim Fox and bassist Dale Peters, will headline the show, reuniting for the first time in more than 15 years. The reunion is called “one last trip”.

According to an official announcement, VetsAid’s net proceeds will go directly to veterans service charities. Tickets go on sale at 10am local time this Friday (August 5).

This year’s cast includes artists from Ohio. Grohl was born in Warren, Ohio, and NIN trained in Cleveland. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys were born in Akron, Ohio.

“It all started in Ohio,” Walsh said in a statement announcing this year’s event (via Billboard): “When I picked up my first guitar as a kid in Columbus it took me on a musical journey to Kent State, Cleveland and then around the world.

“It’s such a privilege and a humbling opportunity for me to share the stage again with my original James Gang mates and this incredible group of Ohio rock legends like Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, the Black Keys, the Breeders and Dave Grohl. .”

The Eagles musician added, “I believe in Ohio and look forward to celebrating our musical heritage as we honor our veterans with VetsAid 2022.”

This year’s ‘VetsAid’ will be one of Dave Grohl’s first live appearances since the death of bandmate Taylor Hawkins on 25th March.

In June, he surprised the Glastonbury 2022 audience by appearing during Paul McCartney’s performance on the Pyramid Stage.

Grohl is likely to perform at Foo Fighters’ “Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert”, which will take place over two nights next September in London (September 3) and Los Angeles (September 27). Some special guests will also be present at these concerts.

For his part, Foos guitarist Chris Shiflett has recently shared a new single titled ‘Long, Long Year’.
