Many of these artists appeared at the rock band’s first Taylor Hawkins tribute concert, which took place in London earlier in September.

That show lasted for six hours and saw 50 songs performed, including a viral performance from Hawkins’ son Shane performing “My Hero” on drums. Also in London, frontman Dave Grohl’s daughter covered Jeff Buckley and Amy Winehouse.

Tickets and merchandise from both Hawkins tribute shows will benefit Music Support and MusiCares, which was the request of Hawkins family.
