Dave Grohl, QOTSA, NIN & Lindsey Buckingham to close Grammys
Grammys to “rock out”… for once.
Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and special guest Lindsey Buckingham will give the closing performance at the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night (26th January).
Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said:
"We're incredibly excited about this number. There's nothing better than when the Grammys can rock out, and to have these artists all together on one stage, doing a number that, when they presented it to us, knocked us out, is going to turn out to be one of those Grammy moments that people talk about for a long time. Long live Trent, Josh, Dave and Lindsey and these great bands!"
It is not yet known what song the rock giants will perform together.
Grohl is up for two Grammys for the soundtrack to his documentary Sound City, QOTSA are up for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Performance, while NIN are up for Best Alternative Music Album.
Also performing on the show in LA will be Metallica with a unique version of their classic song One with renowned Chinese classical pianist Lang Lang.
