Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert Filled With Special Guests, Tears & Love

The surviving members of the Foo Fighters hit the stage tonight at London's Wembley Stadium. Numerous special guests hit the stage, including AC/DC's Brian Johnson, METALLICA's Lars Ulrich, BLINK-182's Travis Barker, Kesha, Liam Gallagher, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's Josh Homme, QUEEN's Brian May and Roger Taylor, Wolfgang Van Halen, Nandi Bushnell, a tribute from DAVE CHAPPELLE, and many more.

The surviving members of the Foo Fighters stepped out on stage to kick off the show. Frontman Dave Grohl addressed the crowd and introduced the first guest, saying: "Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we've gathered here to celebrate the life, the music and the love of our dear friend, our bandmate, our brother Taylor Hawkins.

"For those of you who knew him personally, you know that no one else could make you smile or laugh or dance or sing like he could. And for those of you admired him from afar, I'm sure you've all felt the same thing.

"So, tonight we've gathered with family and his closest friends, his musical heroes and greatest inspirations to bring you a gigantic fucking night for a gigantic fucking person.

"So, sing and dance and laugh and cry and fucking scream and make some fucking noise so he can hear us right now. 'Cause you know what? It's gonna be a loooong fucking night, right?

"Are you ready? Are you ready? Are you fucking ready? Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Liam Gallagher."

Dave also got emotional and shed some tears during "Times Like These." Video below.
