More acts have been added for next month’s highly anticipated Taylor Hawkins tribute concerts.
Three months after the death of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, the band, along with the Hawkins Family, announced two star-studded tribute concerts to celebrate his life.
The first concert will take place on September 3 at London’s Wembley Stadium, the second on September 27 at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.
Acts like Nile Rogers, Travis Barker and Taylor’s son Shane Hawkins will be on the bill alongside artists like Liam Gallagher, Brian May and Mark Ronson.
Chris Rock will also have a special guest appearance alongside Dave Chappell.
Charity, Music Support, who help people working at music and live events who are affected by mental illness and/or addiction, have been announced as one of the gig beneficiaries.
In an online statement, the charity said they were “incredibly grateful, touched, honored and privileged to have been selected as one of the beneficiary charities for these amazing shows.”
MusiCares, which provides services and support to the people behind the music, will also be a charity partner of the event. Both charities were chosen by the Hawkins family.
Paramount has said they will be streaming the events live. More information on where to watch the Gigs is below.
