Republic RecordsEarlier this month, Pearl Jam teased their upcoming documentary Let's Play Two, and now we know all the details. Both the movie and its soundtrack will be released in September.

Let's Play Two, directed by Danny Clinch, documents Pearl Jam's two shows at Chicago's iconic Wrigley Field -- the home of singer Eddie Vedder's beloved Chicago Cubs -- last August. A little over two months later, the Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years.

"In my films and photographs, I love to explore the relationship between a band, their fans and the location," says Clinch. "When it happens that the main characters of your film are Pearl Jam, the Chicago Cubs, their fans, and Wrigley Field during a historic moment, you know it's going to be epic."

Let's Play Two will premiere in Chicago on September 27, but that screening will only be available to members of Pearl Jam's Ten Club. The film will hit theaters in select markets nationwide beginning September 29. The Let's Play Two soundtrack will be released that same day.

You'll also be able to watch Let's Play Two on October 13 on FS1 following Game 1 of the Major League Baseball's American League Championship Series. The doc will be available on home video on November 17.

For the full list of screening dates, visit LetsPlayTwoFilm.com.

Here is the Let's Play Two track list:

"Low Light"
"Better Man"
"Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town"
"Last Exit"
"Lightning Bolt"
"Black Red Yellow"
"Black"
"Corduroy"
"Given to Fly"
"Jeremy"
"Inside Job"
"Go"
"Crazy Mary"
"Release"
"Alive"
"All the Way"
"I've Got a Feeling"

ABC/Andrea McCallinDave Grohl is joining Sammy Hagar's Rock & Roll Road Trip. The Foo Fighters frontman will be a guest on the upcoming third season of the former Van Halen singer's AXS TV reality series, which will premiere in early 2018.

Rock & Roll Road Trip follows Hagar as he travels to different cities to interview and jam with various well-known musicians.

"It's been a cool surprise how much we're all enjoying the interview part of this show because as artists, what happens on stage or in the music studio is the easy/fun stuff, and the interviews often feel like the work," Hagar says of his series.

Earlier this year, Grohl performed at the Acoustinc-4-a-Cure benefit concert, an annual charity event created by Hagar and Metallica's James Hetfield. Hetfield appeared in previous seasons of Rock & Roll Road Trip, as has Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.

ABC/Fred WatkinsDave Grohl loves playing with his other artists, especially his heroes, though his collaborations are usually in the same zip code, musically. So what happened this weekend might surprise a lot of people.

Stereogum reports that at Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival, Foo Fighters played the Marine Stage while '80s phenomenon Rick Astley performed on the Mountain Stage. A more unlikely collaboration could not have been predicted, but leave it to Grohl to come up with something fun on the fly.

Having only met two minutes prior, they got together during the Foos’ headlining set to perform a rocked-up version of Astley’s worldwide hit “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

Video has surfaced online and Grohl seems positively giddy, saying “This is f****** crazy! I just met him two minutes ago!” As Grohl and the band start up the song, Astley shed his clean cut image and shouted, “Come on you mother******!”

Rickroll, that!

Bob Riha Jr/WireImageLinkin Park and JAY-Z joined forces back in 2004 for the mashup EP Collision Course, and the rapper, performing for the first time since the death of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington paused to remember Bennington.

During a show at the V Festival in Staffordshire, England on Saturday, JAY-Z asked the crowd to "light it up tonight for Chester," adding, "Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight," before launching into a rendition of the Collision Course mashup of "Encore" from JAY-Z's The Black Album and Linkin Park's "Numb."

You can watch the performance thanks to fan-posted audience video on YouTube.

Bennington died by suicide July 20. He was 41.

ABC/Randy HolmesThe phrase "Don't Take the Money," which is the title of the lead single from Bleachers' sophomore album Gone Now, has been rattling in Jack Antonoff's head for awhile, but he always had trouble putting it in a song.

"That phrase for me is basically my term for 'don't sell out,' but I couldn't find the song where it didn't sound self-righteous," Antonoff tells ABC Radio. "I couldn't figure out what it was."

It wasn't until Antonoff framed the phrase in a different context that "Don't Take the Money" was born.

"When I started writing about a relationship, and the idea of following a light in a relationship and holding on to your true self throughout all that," he says. "That's when I was like, 'Oh, I wanna use that phrase, this is perfect for this song.'"

"You have these songs you want to write but they don't always happen, maybe the music doesn't sound right or you can't put it together the right way," Antonoff adds. "So that one had been kicking around for awhile, and finally it found that outlet in the song it became."

"Don't Take the Money" is one of several songs on Gone Now to deal with Antonoff's personal experiences. The track "Everybody Lost Somebody," for example, deals with the death of his younger sister, who passed away from cancer at age 13.

"When you write, it's almost like you're putting a message in a bottle and sending it out," Antonoff explains. "So you wanna say really personal, intense things...you send out that message and then someone across the world or over here or over there says, 'Oh, I feel that way too,' it's very powerful."

"It's a tool to feel less alone," he says of songwriting.

ABC/Randy HolmesDo you have the time...to listen to Bastille's "Basket Case" cover? The British band has released their own version of the Green Day classic, which you can download digitally now.

For their cover, Bastille stripped out the pop-punk guitars for bouncy string and horn sections. It's an eerily happy sound for a song about Billie Joe Armstrong's struggle with anxiety.

Bastille recorded "Basket Case" for the upcoming Amazon superhero series The Tick, which premieres August 25.

In September, Bastille will embark on a North American tour in support of their sophomore album, Wild World.

Credit: P.R. BrownEvanescence has released a new version of their breakthrough single, "Bring Me to Life," as the first preview of their forthcoming album, Synthesis, which re-imagines songs from the band's discography with electronics and a full orchestra.

Frontwoman Amy Lee's vocals are just as powerful as ever on the new track, but just when you expect the crunchy, nu-metal guitars of the original's chorus, a giant string section sweeps in. You can download the Synthesis edition of "Bring Me to Life" now via digital platforms.

Along with the reworked tracks, Synthesis also features two brand-new songs. The album is due out in the fall.

Evanescence will kick of a North American headlining tour in support of Synthesis, during which they'll be joined by a full orchestra, October 14 in Las Vegas.

Monica Schipper/FilmMagicMike Diamond is trading in vinyl records for wine bottles for his next gig.

The musician and DJ -- better known as Mike D of Beastie Boys -- will help curate the wine list for a new restaurant called Hearth & Hound that's opening in Los Angeles.

"It's going to be a fun list," Diamond tells Bloomberg. "We are putting together a wine program that will get customers tasting things they might not taste."

Diamond adds that the list will be accessible, even if you're not a Sideways-level wine enthusiast.

"If you want a glass of wine, you shouldn't have to spend an hour figuring out what that wine is, what you’re going to drink," he says.

Diamond plans to make some music suggestions for what Hearth & Hound should play, but he won't be DJing himself.

"I don't think DJing in a restaurant is a good idea -- I'll go bold on that," Diamond says. "Playing records is fun. DJing with turntables when people are eating; I don't know if that would be fun for anybody."

Hearth & Hound, co-owned by the duo behind the famous New York City restaurant The Spotted Pig, is expected to open in L.A. on September 22.

ABC/Fred WatkinsLast month, Foo Fighters performed at the historic Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The concert was recorded for the PBS' Landmarks Live in Concert, an interview and performance series hosted by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. You'll be able to watch the special for yourself when it airs on Friday, November 10, on PBS.

"We've done some crazy things over the last 20 years," says frontman Dave Grohl in a statement. "But I think this might be the craziest thing the Foo Fighters have ever done."

Adds Smith, "The Acropolis hasn't been rocked that hard in a while -- maybe 2,500 hundred years, give or take. It was an amazing experience, made extra special that I could spend it with my longtime friends, the mighty Foos."

During the Acropolis show, Foo Fighters played songs from throughout their 20-year career, plus tracks from their forthcoming new album, Concrete and Gold, which will be released September 15.
