Foo Fighters Announce Taylor Hawkins Tribute Shows


Multi-platinum rock band the Foo Fighters will return to the stage later this year for a pair of tribute concerts to their late drummer/vocalist Taylor Hawkins. The beloved 50-year-old musician was found dead in his hotel while on tour with the band in Bogota, Colombia this past March. The band scrapped all of their touring plans in the wake of his passing.

These upcoming shows will be presented in part by his family, including his widow Alison Hawkins, who issued the below statement earlier today, June 08th:

“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 has 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
