Last week, Foo Fighters and the Hawkins family announced a pair of tribute concerts paying homage to late drummer Taylor Hawkins. Now, they've announced the first wave of special guests set to attend the September 3 event at London's Wembley Stadium — including Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, Liam Gallagher and the Police's Stewart Copeland.

The other high-profile guests scheduled to make appearances in Hawkins' honour are: Chris Chaney (of Jane's Addiction and Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders), Omar Hakim, Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age), Chrissie Hynde (of the Pretenders), Mark Ronson, Supergrass, Rufus Taylor (of the Darkness), Wolfgang Van Halen and Hawkins' cover band Chevy Metal, as well as a "special appearance" by Dave Chappelle.

UPDATE (6/17, 1:56 p.m. ET): Nirvana's Krist Novoselic, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, Nandi Bushell, Chic's Nile Rodgers, Alain Johannes and Greg Kurstin have been added to the lineup, as well as another "special appearance" by Chris Rock.

According to the band's Facebook post, more names will soon be announced. This concert, as well as the September 27 event at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, will benefit to-be-announced charities chosen by the Hawkins family.

Tickets for the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert in London go on sale this Friday (June 17) at 9 a.m. local time.
