The Foo Fighters are an American rock band with noteworthy hits like “Everlong” and “All My Life.” They have given listeners the best of themselves for almost 30 years. On March 25th, Taylor Hawkins, their drummer, bandmate, and friend, unexpectedly passed away at age 50. Since then, the band canceled all their 2022 tour dates to grieve the loss.

However, in honor of Taylor Hawkins, the band recently announced their Taylor Hawkins tribute concerts. Set for this September, the band will play two concerts, the first in London on the 3rd, and the second in Los Angeles on the 27th. According to the Foo Fighters’ website, the band, Hawkins family, and Hawkins’ music inspirations will perform songs that Hawkins “fell in love with, and the ones he brought to life.” Tickets for the concerts will go on sale starting June 17th. More information about the tickets and lineup for the concerts will be released soon on the band’s official website.

The news of his death saddened music lovers across the world.
