Contemporary artists well-known to Hawkins will join the fold as well with the likes of former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, Queens of the Stone Age mainstay Josh Homme, Supergrass and Mark Ronson among those announced so far alongside the players of Hawkins’ own, covers side-project Chevy Metal.

Update – 17th June: Following yesterday’s ticket presale, further acts have been added to the lineups for both London and L.A. shows! The London Wembley Stadium show will now feature the full line-up of rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with Alain Johannes and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones being added to the bill alongside the other group members Josh Homme and Dave Grohl. The full TCV lineup also joins the L.A. show, along with Alanis Morissette, whom Hawkins drummed for before joining Foo Fighters, and P!nk.

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic also joins the shows in London & L.A. in support of former bandmate Dave Grohl. Below is a picture from a Sound City Players show held in London in 2013 where Novoselic joined Foo Fighters on stage to celebrate the legendary L.A. studio where Nirvana recorded Nevermind and captures Novoselic and Hawkins sharing the stage.

Inspiring young British drummer and multi-instrumentalist Nandi Bushell who made waves during the pandemic by having a remote drum-off with Grohl and who joined the Foo Fighters at their recent Madison Square Garden show will also appear along with Chic frontman and rock’s funkiest collaborator Nile Rodgers. American funnyman Chris Rock also joins the fold.
