    After the credits roll on the premiere of HBO’s new series “Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways” on Friday, the band will take the stage for a special concert.

    The premium cable network has teamed with Facebook to present “Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Live from The Cubby Bear,” a live stream of the rock band’s premiere party in Chicago. The concert will stream on HBO’s Facebook page, the network announced Tuesday.

    Foo Fighters will take the stage at midnight, immediately following the premiere. The band is also expected to perform a new single, “Something from Nothing.”

    Directed by frontman Dave Grohl, the eight-part series follows the band traveling to a different city in America – each with its own musical heritage – and working with native artists to produce a track. The songs will make up the band’s forthcoming album, also titled “Sonic Highways,” set for release on Nov. 10.

    The premiere episode is anchored in Chicago – and prominently features the Cubby Bear, a tiny club where Grohl saw his first punk rock show. Foo Fighters also travel to Austin, Texas; Los Angeles; Nashville; New Orleans; New York; Seattle; and Washington.

    Grohl and the Foo Fighters began the promotional blitz behind the series with an appearance Monday night on "The Late Show with David Letterman," where the band performed a cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" with Zac Brown.

    Speaking at the Television Critics Assn. press tour this summer, Grohl said an early inspiration for the series was his 2013 documentary “Sound City," which centered around the Van Nuys studio where a number of landmark albums were recorded, including Nirvana's breakout "Nevermind."

    "I started to realize the power of music and documentary together, because a lot of the times, music can seem really one-dimensional," Grohl said.

    "Part of the focus of this project was the regional relevance of all of these places. In today's world of inter-connectivity, there's kind of no isolation,” Grohl added. “And a lot of the reasons why these specific types of music happened in these places was because of the isolation. ... [Seattle] sort of lived in its own little bio-dome and created this beautiful music scene, a community of musicians that supported each other."

    “Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Live from The Cubby Bear” will also be made available for viewing on HBO at a later date.

    Tldr, but Dave Grohl is awesome. Within the past year, I saw an interesting documentary featuring him called "Sound City".

    One of my favorite music videos of all time is "Big Me" - making fun of the Mentos commercials.
