Foo Fighters are paying tribute to late drummer Taylor Hawkins with a massive tribute concert at London, UK's Wembley Stadium. The star-studded concert is streaming live (and is available for playback) and features performances from Them Crooked Vultures, Liam Gallagher, Nile Rodgers, Supergrass, Chrissie Hynde and, of course, Foo Fighters themselves.

The concert is being streamed through MTV's YouTube channel. Money is being raised for MusiCares, a charity that helps musicians in crisis.

The show began with a photo montage of Hawkins soundtracked by Foo Fighters' "Aurora." After that, Foo Fighters took to the stage to perform a cover of Oasis's "Rock 'N' Roll Star" with Liam Gallagher on vocals and Dave Grohl on drums. Later, Grohl's daughter Violet sung a pair of Jeff Buckley songs.

In addition to live performances, spoken tributes were given remotely by Elton John, RHCP drummer Chad Smith. Watch the concert below; it's still underway as of this writing.

Hawkins died earlier this year at the age of 50. There will be another tribute show at Kia Forum in Los Angeles, CA, on September 27.
