Them Crooked Vultures have announced plans to expand their performance schedule next month, adding a number of North American dates to the supergroup’s planned Coachella gig on April 16. The trio, which counts Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl on drums, guitarist/singer Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age and Led Zeppelin’s bassist John Paul Jones, will get its live Stateside campaign underway at Club Nokia in L.A. on April 14.
Two additional Western dates, in Las Vegas and Denver , will closely follow its Coachella slot. Additional North American gigs in support of Them Crooked Vultures’ eponymous 2009 debut are slated for mid-May, when the band will touch down in Quebec and Ontario before crossing down into the lower 48 for gigs in Indianapolis and Chicago.
2010 looks to be an active one for Grohl, who recently announced plans to reconvene with the Foo Fighters in September at his garage studio for album sessions that will be produced by Butch Vig. Vig, of course, helmed Nirvana’s 1991 watermark ‘Nevermind.’
