Last week, the Foo Fighters announced that they would hold two massive tribute concerts in honor of their late drummer, Taylor Hawkins.

Today (June 15), the band revealed the lineup for the two shows, which will take place in London and Los Angeles on September 3 and September 27, respectively. Filled to the brim with guest stars, the lineups are a testament to the rock world's love of Hawkins, who died in March at the age of 50 while the Foo Fighters were on tour in Colombia.
