Members of Tool, Motley Crue, Soundgarden & More Added to Second Taylor Hawkins Tribute Show
Earlier this month (Sept. 3), Foo Fighters – and their many musical guests – blew everyone away with the first of two tribute concerts in honor of late drummer Taylor Hawkins. Naturally, fans have been clamoring to learn more about who’ll be playing at the second show, and luckily, the band has just revealed a few more enticing names.
Yesterday, Foo Fighters took to Twitter to announce what seems to be the complete line-up for the performance (which will take place at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum on Sept. 27). In addition to returning favorites such as Josh Homme, Kesha, Stewart Copeland, Travis Barker, Chris Chaney, Violet Grohl, Justin Hawkins, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, the group unveiled that Tool’s Danny Carey, Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee, Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, The Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen and Def Leppard’s Phil Collen and Joe Elliot have joined the celebration.
You can see the full Twitter post (with plenty of enthusiastic reactions) below:
