FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl will guest host “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday night, October 31. He will be filling in for Kimmel, who is taking time off while he prepares for his son’s second heart surgery. Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum and Shaquille O’Neal will also step in for Kimmel this week.
Grohl‘s episode will feature Kristen Bell and Alice Cooper as guests. Cooper is also slated to perform on the show.
“As a precautionary measure, the scheduled second heart surgery for Jimmy Kimmel‘s son Billy had to be postponed this week due to the common cold,” said a Kimmel representative. “Jimmy is very grateful to Shaquille O’Neal, Dave Grohl, Channing Tatum and Jennifer Lawrence for filling his very small shoes as guest host this week while he, his wife and children sneeze on each other.”
Back in 2013, Grohl filled in for Chelsea Handler and guest-hosted “Chelsea Lately” for an entire week.
FOO FIGHTERS‘ new LP, “Concrete And Gold”, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart last month, selling 127,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release.
The band’s fall North American tour kicked off earlier this month in San Bernardino, California with Cal Jam 17, a daylong festival featuring the FOO FIGHTERS headlining a bill that included QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ROYAL BLOOD, CAGE THE ELEPHANT and more.
