Taylor Hawkins, the drummer for the Foo Fighters tragically died in March 2022 but to celebrate his life, the Hawkins family and the remaining members of the band are throwing two huge concerts. The first of which is happening at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday 3 September while a second will be at the Kia Forum in LA on Tuesday 27 September. Both gigs will feature an extensive list of some of the biggest names in rock performing live on stage with Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters.
Unsurprisingly, tickets for both gigs sold out almost instantly and even resales have been hard to find. Luckily, both concerts are being live streamed around the world and then made available on-demand, to watch later.
We've rounded up the best ways to watch the London show live and also on-demand, from the UK, US or wherever you are in the world.

If you're out of the country on holiday or business, you can still get access to a live stream - simply use the best VPN around to get past those geo-restrictions. A streaming VPN is a very handy thing, as it means you can hop on a server within the US, UK or anywhere else and it will switch your IP address to make it appear as if you're browsing right from the comfort of your own home.
- VPN - standing for virtual private network - offers security and anonymity as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
- As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
- Most VPNs offer a list of locations where its servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you're browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
