Foo Fighters have announced the first performers who’ll appear at the upcoming Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts.

As previously reported, the two shows in London and Los Angeles will feature Hawkins’ “bandmates and his inspirations playing the songs that he fell in love with, and the ones he brought to life.”

The artists who’ll be joining the Foos onstage at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 3 include Rush‘s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, Queen‘s Brian May and Roger Taylor, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Stewart Copeland of The Police, Liam Gallagher, Wolfgang Van Halen, Josh Homme, Mark Ronson, bassist Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction and Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders, and legendary drummer/producer Omar Hakim, who’s worked with Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Dire Straits, Miles Davis, Journey, Kate Bush and dozens more.

Plus, Dave Chappelle will make a special appearance, and Hawkins’ cover band Chevy Metal is also on the bill.

The guests for the September 27 Los Angeles show at the Kia Forum will be announced at noon Wednesday. The charities that will benefit from both shows — chosen by the Hawkins family — will be announced shortly. For ticket information, join the Foo Fighters’ mailing list.
