Taylor Hawkins' 16-year-old son took the stage at a tribute concert to honor his late father.

Hawkins died in March from a drug overdose.

Foo Fighters held their first concert in honor of Hawkins at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday.

Hawkins' son, Shane, joined the band for "My Hero." As Shane played the drums like his father, lead singer Dave Grohl watched with admiration.

The concert also featured performances from Paul McCartney, plus members of Queen, AC/DC, The Pretenders and many others. Elton John was featured in a pre-recorded video and comedian Dave Chapelle spoke about his interactions with Hawkins.

Foo Fighters will hold another tribute concert on Sept. 27 at The Kia Forum in Inglewood, California.
