Everybody has been wondering what, if anything, would be happening next with Foo Fighters after we lost Taylor Hawkins in March. Now we have an answer: two massive tribute concerts!
Foo Fighters and The Hawkins family will bring us the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts on September 3rd in London at Wembley Stadium and September 27th at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. There's no word on who is playing yet, but they will both be "all-star rock shows" with special guests who inspired and were inspired by Taylor! These will no doubt be two incredible nights to celebrate Taylor's life.
From Foo Fighters: "As one of the most respected and beloved figures in modern music, Taylor’s monolithic talent and magnetic personality endeared him to millions of fans, peers, friends and fellow musical legends the world over. Millions mourned his untimely passing on March 25, with passionate and sincere tributes coming from fans as well as musicians Taylor idolized. The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts will unite several of those artists, the Hawkins family and of course his Foo Fighters brothers in celebration of Taylor’s memory and his legacy as a global rock icon—his bandmates and his inspirations playing the songs that he fell in love with, and the ones he brought to life."
From Alison Hawkins: "My deepest thanks and admiration go out to the global Foo Fighters community and Taylor’s fans far and wide for the outpouring of love each and every one of you have shown our beloved Taylor. Your kindness has been an invaluable comfort for my family and me during this time of unimaginable grief.”
