Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert Los Angeles: Guest Stars, Set List
Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters followed the same basic format as the earlier London tribute which took place earlier this month, sharing the stage with dozens of Hawkins' friends and musical heroes for a wide-ranging collection of cover songs before closing out the evening with their own headlining set.
"We started working on putting both of these shows together a long, long time ago," Grohl explained early in the evening, "because what we really wanted to do was to pay tribute to Taylor in a way that you could sort of spend some time in his musical mind. Just as with the show in London, we've all gathered here to celebrate this person that has touched our lives – whether from afar, or for all of his friends and family and loved ones, and musician buddies and heroes who are here tonight.
"If any of you ever had the blessing of spending time with Taylor," Grohl added, "you know that that dude could make you smile and dance and laugh and sing. So what we've done is we've brought an even crazier cast of characters for you tonight."
