Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins received his final GOODBYE in a star-studded tributary concert at Wembley Stadium.
Taylor Hawkins passed away on March 25, 2022.
And his final goodbye was in the place he loved the most—the Concert Stage.
Here is more to it.
Goodbye Taylor Hawkins
The Foo Fighters paid a moving tribute to their drummer Taylor Hawkins at a concert in London on Saturday night, featuring a star-studded lineup that included Paul McCartney and Liam Gallagher.
Hawkins, 50, died in March in Bogotá, Colombia, just hours before the Foo Fighters were set to perform at the Festival Estereo Picnic. The band immediately called off the rest of its tour.
The band hadn’t played together since Hawkins’ passing until Saturday’s concert.
The first of two tribute concerts held in honor of late Foo Fighters drummer Hawkins took place at Wembley Stadium. The lineup included Sir Paul McCartney, Queen, and AC/DC, but the most touching performance came from Hawkins’ 16-year-old son, Shane, who played the drums in memory of his father.
Them Crooked Vultures, a supergroup made up of Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin performed live for the first time in 12 years at the concert. Other acts performed included Supergrass, Nile Rodgers, the Pretenders, and Kesha.
The Foo Fighters tribute
Dave Grohl gave a moving eulogy at the event on Saturday in London. He said: “Taylor loved to jam and record with anyone and everyone. Every day, he enjoyed playing music. And not many people are there with whom he has never jammed. Thus, he is the one who brought together this group of friends, family, and musicians, and he is also the reason why we are all gathered here today.
Dave Grohl, the frontman of the Foo Fighters, told the crowd to roar at the end of their performance on Friday night in London, but not to end the show.
Grohl yelled, “Let’s hear it one more time for Taylor f****** Hawkins as loud as you can. We love you, Taylor!
