| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The show that has quickly become the buzz of Lollapalooza 2009--though it is not taking place in Grant Park and requires a separate ticket--the debut of Them Crooked Vultures, a new supergroup featuring Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and the mighty John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin--sold out in three minutes Thursday morning when tickets went on sale for its 11:59 p.m. show Sunday at Metro.

A spokesman for the group advises: "They're doing paperless [tickets], so no scalpers. Make sure your readers know not to get ripped off!"

No word on how many tickets to the Metro show were sold, but capacity at the venerated North Side club is 1,100.
Meanwhile,
Rolling Stone.com
is reporting that the band will release an album entitled "Never Deserved the Future" on Oct. 23.
