In one of the most powerful, emotional and overwhelming performances we've seen, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took a few deep breaths, took everything in and began singing 'Times Like These' - signalling their first performance without late drummer Taylor Hawkins.

The audience cheered as Grohl's vocal paired with Rami Jaffee's keys. He looked towards an illuminated hawk symbol before the rest of the band came in to power through the rest of the performance. Raw emotion poured out as the crowd illuminated the venue and helped the band along in what was truly a spellbinding moment. Watch below.

The very special performance from the Foo Fighters capped their collaborative effort with the Hawkins family and Paramount's Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert at Wembley - live streamed for all to watch worldwid, with the Foo Fighters set featuring performances on the drums from Josh Freese, Travis Barker, Nandi Bushell, Rufus Tiger Taylor, Omar Hakim and Hawkins' son Shane for an incredible and fitting rendition of 'My Hero'.
