Led Zeppelin bassist Jon Paul Jones and former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic have been added to the line-up of a tribute concert in memory of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The event at London’s Wembley Stadium will now also feature Nile Rodgers of Cheek, Chilean-American multi-instrumentalist Ellen Johannes and award-winning record producer Greg Kurstin.
American comedian Chris Rock is also joining the line-up for a special set.
They join a billing that already includes acts such as Liam Gallagher, Queen’s Brian May and stand-up Dave Chappelle.
Queens of the Stone Age star Josh Homme; Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang; producer and jazz drummer Omar Hakim; And Rush frontman Geddy Lee is also performing.
The show will be followed by a second concert at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on September 27, with acts such as Alanis Morissette and Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the bill.
The show is expected to be the band’s first since Hawking was found dead at the age of 50 in his hotel room in Columbia in March.
No cause of death was announced, although a preliminary toxicology report showed traces of 10 substances, including opioids and marijuana, in his body.
Hawkins had played in the band, opposite former Nirvana drummer-turned-lead vocalist Dave Grohl, for more than two decades.
