PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — As Dave Grohl took to the stage at the Park City Live, he gave the audience an expletive-laced warning: "It's going to be a long night."

But fans were rewarded Friday night as Grohl brought out members of the Foo Fighters, ex-bandmates in Nirvana, plus John Fogerty, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, and several others in a three-hour plus concert that celebrated his directorial debut — the film "Sound City."

Earlier Friday, "Sound City," a documentary about the music made at the recording studio of the same name, had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. "Sound City" includes interviews with some of the key musicians who made music at Los Angeles-based studio, including Nicks, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney and others.

At the packed concert, Grohl brought on stage some of those same players, named, appropriately enough, the Sound City Players. Fogerty performed some of his classics, including "Proud Mary," ''Traveling Band" and "Centerfield"; Springfield jammed with Grohl and others for his hits, including "Jessie's Girl" and "I've Done Everything for You"; and Nicks performed songs including "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around."

"I wish we could play 100 songs, but we have 17 musicians tonight," Grohl said at one point.

One of the concert's highlights came when Grohl brought out Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, his old Nirvana partner Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear together for a set that included Taylor belting out the Fats Domino classic "Ain't That A Shame."

"This, without any (expletive) is a dream (expletive) come true for me," Taylor said, echoing the sentiments of many in the crowd as well.

The Sound City Players are featured on an upcoming album that came out of the documentary: "Sound City — Real to Reel."

Grohl has more appearances scheduled for his Sundance film premiere this week, and the Sound City Players plan to perform other shows in the near future.
