Signed instruments that were used during the tribute concerts for the late Taylor Hawkins will soon be auctioned for charity, according to People. Proceeds from the auction will go to MusiCares and Music Support which raise funds for mental health and wellness initiatives within the music industry.

The Hawkins Tribute Concert collection will be part of the "Icons & Idols: Rock 'N' Roll" event on November 11-13th at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. The collection will feature an assortment of signed guitars, cymbals, drum heads, and other instruments and accessories. The instruments were played by the likes of Dave Grohl, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, Joan Jett, The Cars' Elliot Easton, Kesha, the Police's Stewart Copeland, and more.

The two sold-out tribute concerts were held at Wembley Stadium in London on September 3rd and Kia Forum in Inglewood, California on September 27th to honor the Foo Fighters drummer who unexpectedly died at the age of 50.

"MusiCares was honored to be the U.S. non-profit beneficiary for the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts, and we are proud to partner with Julien's Auctions on this incredible collection," Laura Segura, executive director of MusiCares said in a statement. "We are dedicated to helping the humans behind the music because music gives so much to the world, and this auction continues the beautiful celebration of Taylor's life, and his immense contribution to the music industry."
