John Paul Jones/Dave Grohl/Josh Homme supergroup to play midnight show at Metro on 8/9/09
Tickets go on sale Thursday, August 6 at 10am for one of the biggest "secret" shows to grace our Chicago stages in a while. The supergroup, supposedly dubbed Them Crooked Vultures (though the linked page above only teases with Zoso-like symbols), that combines Led Zeppelin, Nirvana (sorry, sounds better than Foo Fighters) and Queens of the Stone Age will further exhaust Lolla crowds at midnight on Sunday Aug 9, just after the big festival wraps up in Grant Park. Start waiting in virtual line.
Immediate thought: so why didn't this fill in for the Beastie Boys?
