Foo Fighters wrapped up their epic tribute show for fallen bandmate and beloved rock icon Taylor Hawkins earlier this evening (Saturday September 3) at Wembley Stadium, and it was a truly epic rock 'n' roll gig befitting of a drummer so admired by fans and peers alike.

Featuring a smorgasbord of rock and metal icons from across the spectrum, the show included playthroughs of both Foo Fighters classics and rock mega-hits from across the decades.

Kicking off at 4.30pm with a heartfelt message from the Foos, who walked out on stage to a heroes' welcome from 80,000+ emotional fans, the show lasted a full six hours, racking up no less than 50 songs in the process. 

Below is a list of every single song played on the night, as well as every special guest who made an appearance in honour of Taylor, who died suddenly back in March aged just 50 years old.
