As you saw here in Gizmodo Brazil, Foo Fighters announced that they will pay tribute to drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died in March of this year. Now, it was time to release the event’s line-up.

The tribute will feature several top artists, including 12-year-old teenage drummer Nandi Bushell, who is considered an internet phenomenon.

Nandi went viral by playing rock classics on drums, in videos recorded by her father. The teenager is born in Durban, South Africa, and is of Zulu descent. She started playing drums at age 5 after seeing the Beatles’ “Hey Jude” music video and becoming fascinated with Ringo Starr. Over time, covers of her on YouTube caught the attention of musicians from bands like Rush, Foo Fighters and Muse, among others.

The Taylor Hawkins tribute event will be divided into two performances, in two different locations: the first, in London, on September 3 (with Nandi’s participation) and the second, in Los Angeles on the 27th of the same month.

In London, the tribute takes place at Wembley Stadium, and will feature names such as Liam Gallagher (Oasis), Brian May and Roger Taylor (Queen) and Nile Rodgers. The event will also feature the special participation of comedians Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock. Check out the attractions of the first day:

In Los Angeles, the shows take place at the Kia Forum, an arena located in Inglewood. Personalities such as Miley Cyrus, Joan Jett and Alanis Morissette will be present. Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor will participate again. See the full line-up for the second day:

Tickets for the tribute went on sale last Friday (17). On both days, the money raised from the event will go to charities in the United States and United Kingdom, chosen by the Hawkins family.

Taylor Hawkins, 50-year-old drummer for the band Foo Fighters, was found dead in a hotel room in Bogotá, Colombia, on March 25, during the band’s tour of South America.

According to Colombian police, the musician would have consumed a cocktail of drugs, including marijuana, tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opioids. With chest pains, Taylor asked the reception of the hotel where he was staying in Bogotá for help, but he was found dead. According to forensic experts, the artist’s heart weighed 600 grams, almost double the normal weight for a man of his age.
