The first of two tribute concerts honoring late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins takes place Saturday at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The star-studded event, which will feature a towering roster of guests performing alongside Foo members Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee, is set to stream live via Paramount+ and MTV’s YouTube channel beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET.
An hour-long version of the concert will also air as a special on CBS on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET. MTV will also air a two-hour special later in September.
The many artists joining the Foos in London for the tribute include AC/DC‘s Brian Johnson, Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones, Rush‘s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, Queen‘s Brian May and Roger Taylor, the Joe Walsh-fronted James Gang, The Pretenders‘ Chrissie Hynde and Martin Chambers, Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich, The Police‘s Stewart Copeland, Nirvana‘s Krist Novoselic, ex-Oasis singer Liam Gallagher and Wolfgang Van Halen.
Grohl’s daughter Violet and Hawkins’ son Shane are also on the bill, as is Taylor’s cover band Chevy Metal.
