In June, the Foo Fighters announced two star-studded, blockbuster concerts celebrating the life of their former drummer, Taylor Hawkins, who died suddenly in March at the age of 50.

The first will take place on September 3 at London's Wembley Stadium, while the second will occur on September 27 at Los Angeles's Kia Forum.

Today, broadcast and streaming details for the first of the two concerts were announced, alongside additions to the respective lineups of both shows.
