Next month, Foo Fighters front man, former Nirvana drummer and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dave Grohl will release The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music, his first-ever official memoir.

The book was announced a while back, and on Monday Grohl also announced plans for a handful of in-person book release events, set for late September and into mid-October in major cities including London, Washington, D.C. (a crucial location and part of Grohl’s story from childhood to adulthood), New York City and Los Angeles.

The dates, with tickets going on sale today, Sept. 20:

September 27 – London
October 5 – New York City
October 7 – Washington, DC
October 12 – Los Angeles 
October 13 – Los Angeles 

As you might expect given Grohl’s exuberant personality and knack for entertaining, these events promise to be pretty special:

From his formative years on the DC punk rock scene through the decades of music that followed, Dave will share the experiences that have defined him — plus some special surprises — all 100% live and in-person in four select cities.

Tickets include a copy of the book.

The following was part of the official details regarding The Storyteller when the book was announced:

“There is a common thread that runs throughout everything that I do: storytelling. Whether in song, documentary film or on the page, I have always felt compelled to share moments from my life. This inclination is a huge part of what excites me creatively but also as a human being. In March 2020, realizing that my day job with the Foo Fighters was going to go on hold, I started an Instagram account (@davestruestories) and decided to focus all of my creative energy on writing some of my stories down, something I love doing but I’ve never really had the time for. I soon found that the reward I felt every time I posted a story was the same as the feeling I get when playing a song to an audience, so I kept on writing. The response from readers was a soul-filling as any applause in an arena. So, I took stock of all the experiences I’ve had in my life-incredible, difficult, funny and emotional-and decided it was time to finally put them into words. Now with the amazing people at Dey Street books I’m excited and honored to announce THE STORYTELLER, a collection of memories of a life lived loud. From my early days growing up in the suburbs of Washington, DC, to hitting the road at the age of 18, and all the music that followed, I can now share these adventures with the world, as seen and heard from behind the microphone. Turn it up!”
