Foo Fighters gave their beloved late drummer Taylor Hawkins a massive, heart-warming send-off on Saturday (September 3) when they hosted an all-star tribute concert at London’s Wembley Stadium.

In addition to the surviving Foo Fighters lineup of Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee, guests included Liam Gallagher, Nile Rodgers, Chris Chaney, Omar Hakim, Lars Ulrich and Stewart Copeland, while Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee joined forces with Dave Grohl to perform a trio of Rush classics.
