Τη διεξαγωγή δύο συναυλιών στη μνήμη του Taylor Hawkins, ο οποίος πέθανε στις 25 Μαρτίου, ανακοίνωσαν οι Foo Fighters μαζί με την οικογένειά του.

Όπως ανακοινώθηκε, η πρώτη από τις συναυλίες θα γίνει στις 3 Σεπτεμβρίου στο Wembley στο Λονδίνο και η δεύτερη θα γίνει στις 27 Σεπτεμβρίου στο Kia Forum στο Los Angeles. Επί του παρόντος δεν έχει ανακοινωθεί ποιοι θα συμμετέχουν στις συναυλίες στη μνήμη του ντράμερ των Foo Fighters. Το μόνο που αναφέρεται είναι πως θα πρόκειται για ένα all star lineup στο οποίο θα συμμετέχουν και πολλοί καλλιτέχνες τους οποίους θαύμαζε ο Hawkins.

Υπενθυμίζεται ότι ο ντράμερ των Foo Fighters, κατά τη διάρκεια της μουσικής του καριέρας είχε συμμετάσχει σε διάφορα tribute σχήματα και ήταν γνωστός για την αγάπη του σε κλασσικά ροκ σχήματα όπως οι Queen, οι Police και οι Genesis, ενώ στο παρελθόν έχει συνεργαστεί (περισσότερες από μια φορές) με μέλη των Queen.
