Queen and Rush are two of Hawkins' favorite bands of all-time. The drummer famously sang lead on the Foos' version of Queen's "Somebody to Love" in concert. Hawkins and Foos frontman Dave Grohl inducted Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
Other guests will include The Police drummer Stewart Copeland, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde, The Darkness drummer Rufus Taylor, renowned jazz drummer/producer Omar Hakim, producer Mark Ronson, Wolfgang Van Halen and comedian Dave Chappelle, among others.
The event will be hosted by the Foo Fighters and Hawkins family on September 3 at London's Wembley Stadium.
The Foos are holding another tribute in Hawkins' hometown of Los Angeles at the Kia Forum on September 27. The bill for that show will be announced later Wednesday.
