As a testament to Taylor Hawkins’ stature as a beloved rock music figure, a cavalcade of stars are turning out for his upcoming tribute concerts in London and Los Angeles.
As previously reported, with the approval of Hawkins’ family, Foo Fighters will honor their late drummer with “all-star rock shows” at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 3rd and Los Angeles’ Kia Forum on September 27th.
Hawkins’ friends, fans, and past collaborators are set to appear alongside Foo Fighters at both shows. In London, the guest list includes RUSH’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, Liam Gallagher, Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May, The Police’s Steward Copeland, Jane’s Addiction’s Chris Chaney, Queens of the Stone Age’s Joshua Homme, Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Wolfgang Van Halen, Omar Hakim, and members of Hawkins’ covers band Chevy Metal.
The lineup for the Los Angeles concert will be announced later today.
Tickets be available starting Friday, June 17th at 9:00 a.m. local time, and proceeds will benefit charities in both the UK and the US chosen by the Hawkins family. Get tickets to the London show here, and the Los Angeles show here.
