During the emotional performance, a photo of the rock star, who died during the South American leg of the Foo Fighters world tour, was shared.

The drum kit used at the charity gig also had the name “Taylor” on it.

Gallagher’s most recent single Everything’s Electric was co-written by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

Following the news of Hawkins’ sudden death, Gallagher tweeted, “Absolutely devastated to hear the sad news about Taylor Hawkins, my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends RIP Brother.”

Gallagher is an ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust and played the penultimate concert in a week-long series which also starred Don Broco, Yungblud and Madness. Ed Sheeran will wrap up the series of gigs with a Sunday night show.

The performances, now in their 20th year, included an evening of comedy hosted by Joel Dommett, with guests including Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan and Seann Walsh.

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey helped start the concert series in 2000 to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and is also a patron of the charity. Due to the pandemic, there were no shows in 2020 and 2021.
