It's less than a month since London's Wembley Stadium reverberated to the astonishingly successful sounds of the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert, and today it was Los Angeles' turn. 

Taking to the stage after Violet Grohl had opened proceedings with a stirring version of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah, Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl addressed the crowd at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, taking a few moments to explain what it was all about. 

“This is the hometown shit, so you gotta make it loud," said Grohl. "That dude could make you fuckin’ smile and laugh and dance and sing. It’s gonna be a long fuckin’ night.”

Below is a list of every song played during the six hour show, as well as every special guest who made an appearance to honour Hawkins, who died in March.

The Taylor Hawkins tribute show from Wembley Stadium, London, is available to watch on-demand with a Paramount+ subscription.
