Dave Grohl Foo Fighters 2014

Confirming his reputation as The Nicest Man In Rock™, Dave Grohl is going to host a birthday concert next week to raise funds for three charities.

The in-the-round show is set to take place in The Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday, with tickets priced at $50.

It's a few days before Grohl's actual birthday on 14th January, which will see him turn 46.

The charities set to benefit with a portion of the proceeds are the Rock School Scholarship Fund, MusiCares and Sweet Relief.

It's the band's first show of 2015 and their last warm-up before they head out on the Sonic Highways world tour.
