The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert will seek to honor the late Foo Fighters member Taylor Hawkins over two nights in London and Los Angeles this September. It will be presented by Foo Fighters and the Hawkins family, with the band sharing in a statement: “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… 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.”
What Is the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert?
The two-night celebration will be staged between London’s Wembley Stadium on September 3rd and Los Angeles’ Kia Forum on September 27th. The first venue was permanently enshrined in Foos lore thanks to their 2008 concert documentary Live at Wembley Stadium (perhaps most notable for Hawkins’ frontman moment covering Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones). Meanwhile, the Kia Forum show will return the band to Hawkins’ hometown roots in Los Angeles.
