The Foo Fighters will team up with Deadmau5, David Guetta and Lil Wayne for a tribute to electronic music at the Grammy Awards this Sunday. It's an unlikely move for the Foos, who are so old school that they made a point of recording their Grammy-nominated album Wasting Light entirely on analog tape, but the band is nominated for best remix for a version of their single "Rope" that was reworked by Deadmau5. The performance will be set on an open air stage outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
In other Foo team-up news, Dave Grohl and the band will headline a campaign fundraiser show for Barack Obama with Will Ferrell, who will serve as co-host for the event. Tickets for the gig, which will be held on the estate of soap opera mogul Bradley Bell, will be rather pricey, with general admission tickets going for $250 and V.I.P. passes selling for $1,500.
