Taylor Hawkins: Foo Fighters announce tribute concert

Hawkins died on March 25 during a South American tour with the rock band. He’s 50 years old.

NEW YORK – Foo Fighters will honor the late drummer of rock band Taylor Hawkins with a pair of tribute concerts in September – one in London and the other in Los Angeles.

The twin concerts will take place on September 3 at London’s Wembley Stadium and September 27 at The Kia Forum in Inglewood, California, featuring “his band friends and his inspiration as the band pal plays songs that he loves and that he has brought to life,” the band said in a statement. Line-ups for each show will be announced at a later date.

Hawkins died on March 25 during a South American tour with the rock band. He’s 50 years old.

Taylor’s wife, Alison, took to social media to thank the band and the fans for their support. “To celebrate his life, it is now for all of us who loved him most to honor Taylor’s legacy and the music he gave us.”

Hawkins was Alanis Morissette’s touring drummer when he joined Foo Fighters in 1997, making his first appearance with the band on a tour in support of their second album “The Color & The Shape”.

He first recorded with Foo Fighters on “There Is Nothing Left To Lose.” Hawkins has played on every subsequent album by the band, including “One by One” and “In Your Honor,” and on hit singles such as “Best of You.”

The band canceled its tour following Hawkins’ death. At the Grammy Awards on April 3, an extended tribute to Hawkins was played before the show’s In Memoriam segment honoring deceased artists and music industry figures. Billie Eilish paid homage to Hawkins during her performance by wearing a black t-shirt featuring him.
