Some of the biggest names in music will come together this weekend for the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert.

The star concerts were organized by Hawkins’ bandmates, including frontman Dave Grohl, and his bereaved family.

Two shows are scheduled, one at Wembley Arena in London and the other in Los Angeles.

Famous faces who will take the stage to honor the rock legend will include Liam Gallagher, Brian May, Mark Ronson and Supergrass, to name a few.

The charity provides essential health and wellbeing services to the music community in three key areas: mental health and addictions recovery services, health services and social services.

All merchandise sold will also benefit the two charities.
