Foo Fighters And The Hawkins Family Announce Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts In UK And US

Wednesday, 08 June 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Foo Fighters and the Hawkins family have announced tribute concerts for the late Taylor Hawkins in the US and UK.

Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee will celebrate their longtime bandmate at a huge London show at Wembley Stadium on September 3 and Los Angeles' Kia Forum on September 27. Tickets go on sale at 9am local time on June 17. The line-ups for each concert will be confirmed soon. 

To coincide with the announcement, Hawkins' wife Alison shared a statement on behalf of her family:

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.

As Taylor's wife, and on behalf of our children, I want to share how much you meant to him and how dedicated he was to "knocking your socks off" during every performance. Taylor was honored to be a part of the Foo Fighters and valued his dream role in the band every minute of his 25 years with them. We consider every band member and the extended Foo Fighters team our family.

Taylor's endearing spirit and deep love of music will live on forever through the collaborations he so enjoyed having with other musicians and the catalog of songs he contributed to and created.

In celebration of his life, it is now up to all of us who loved him most to honor Taylor's legacy and the music he gave us.

Thank you all again for your love and sympathy. Taylor loved all of you & we love you too.

With gratitude,

Alison Hawkins

The Foo Fighters drummer passed away unexpectedly in March aged 50.
