The star-studded Taylor Hawkins tribute concert took place at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday (Sept. 3.) During the show, Hawkins' 16-year-old son Oliver Shane joined Foo Fighters on stage to drum along to "My Hero."

Frontman Dave Grohl gave Shane a warm welcome to the audience. “Now, we’ve got the little guy,” he said. “Let me tell you, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone hit the drums as hard as this person. But beyond that, he’s a member of our family and he needs to be here tonight with all of us and I think it makes sense that he’s going to come up and play with us tonight.” The moving performance saw Shane rocking out on the drums and ended with an impressive solo.

Watch the performance below:

Elsewhere in the show, Grohl's daughter Violet took the stage to perform covers from two beloved artists — Jeff Buckley and Amy Winehouse. She was joined by a band comprised of her father on drums, Alain Johannes, Jason Falkner, and Chris Chaney to perform "Last Goodbye" by Jeff Buckley — an artist that Grohl says Hawkins "loved." Later in the show, Violet was joined by Mark Ronson, Chris Chaney, and Jason Falkner to cover Amy Winehouse’s iconic track “Valerie.”
