Tickets for Foo Fighters’ historic Wrigley Field stand will be on sale to the public Monday, October 27 at 10 am CT at cubs.com/foo, with fan club pre-sales beginning 10 am CT Friday, October 24 and running through 5 pm CT Sunday, October 26 (Fans can sign up to receive a pre-sale code at http://www.foofighters.com/#email). A 4 ticket limit for the general admission floor, and 6 ticket limit for the reserved sections will be strictly enforced.

WE LOVE YOU, IKEY

Ikey Owens

It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah “Ikey” Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans.

Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White’s backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects.

Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled.

We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist.

Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear will take the stage at Chicago’s The Cubby Bear at midnight (EST) on Friday, October 17 immediately following a screening of the premiere episode. The show will feature the first ever in-concert performance of the new single “Something from Nothing” from the band’s forthcoming album, also titled Sonic Highways (out November 10 on Roswell/RCA).

Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways is an unprecedented eight-part documentary series that digs deep into the heart and soul of America’s musical identity.

The premiere episode takes place in Chicago and prominently features The Cubby Bear, a small club with huge personal significance to Grohl, who saw his first punk rock show at the venue – an event that set him on his life’s path.

Fans located in Chicago can attend the concert by purchasing tickets online at http://itsh.bo/FFChicago beginning Wednesday, October 15 at 10:00am (CST). A two-ticket limit per customer will be strictly enforced and attendees must be 21+.

BROKEN BELLS DEBUT “AFTER THE DISCO” VIDEO

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR ON SALE NOW

After the Disco

After the Disco

“James Mercer and Brian Burton were two dark silhouettes against the swirling vortex of outer space in an act that was as impressive for its music as it was for its dynamic lighting.” – DALLAS MORNING NEWS

“It was a polished set of spacey rock…the visual component deserves special attention. The stellar-themed visualization behind the band shifted through the solar system before ultimately landing on a gorgeous sparkling scene with warm golden lighting, which may or may not have elicited an audible ‘ohh’ from me.” – AUSTIN AMERICAN STATESMAN

“The team-up of Mercer and producer/songwriter Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse, makes for something extra special…The duo’s performance dripped with talent.” – FLAGPOLE

Broken Bells are happy to premiere their new video for the title track from their second album, After the Disco (Columbia). Directed by Nelson de Castro, the video initially chronicles the moments after the party ends through a series of comings and goings from various rooms. The storyline is eventually flipped when the camera’s rotation is reversed to depict the lead in to a night filled with dancing. Watch the videohere.

Brian Burton and James Mercer recently embarked on a new leg of their North American tour which will see the duo bring their infectious grooves and melodies to venues and festivals throughout the Midwest and West Coast. Tickets and additional information are available at http://www.brokenbells.com/tour/.

“When it comes to dominating a stage, he has few peers… White could tour with an entire philharmonic orchestra or a volcano and he’d still be the one thing on stage nobody could take their eyes off of.”–WASHINGTON POST

“Jack did it again, for maybe the 1,000,000th time, unleashing 100 minutes of ear-scorching, skull-busting evidence that rock’s nowhere near the grave.”–MIAMI NEW TIMES
