Recap: The full setlist for Foo Fighters' London Tribute Concert for Taylor Hawkins

This past Saturday (September 3) -  Foo FIghters held the first of two tribute concerts for their deceased drummer and friend - Taylor Hawkins.  Frontman Dave Grohl stepped out on stage to address the crowd and kick off the event saying - "Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we've gathered here to celebrate the life, the music and the love of our dear friend, our bandmate, our brother Taylor Hawkins.

For those of you who knew him personally, you know that no one else could make you smile or laugh or dance or sing like he could. And for those of you admired him from afar, I'm sure you've all felt the same thing.


So, tonight we've gathered with family and his closest friends, his musical heroes and greatest inspirations to bring you a gigantic fucking night for a gigantic fucking person.


So, sing and dance and laugh and cry and fucking scream and make some fucking noise so he can hear us right now. 'Cause you know what? It's gonna be a loooong fucking night, right?


Are you ready? Are you ready? Are you fucking ready? Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Liam Gallagher."


And thus began an incredible 3 hour show with nearly 50 family and friends helping the Foos remember Tayor.  Check out the set list and some clips:
