Instead of touring for the first time ever, Foo Fighters are canceling their tour to mourn their beloved drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Foo Fighters raised a generation and we can all agree on coming together to mourn the loss of Taylor Hawkings. A message posted on the band’s Twitter account revealed they’re taking “this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close.”
“It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins,” the message read. “We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all of the music and memories we’ve made together.”
Taylor Hawkins got his start as a part of Alanis Morissette’s band before officially joining the Foo Fighters in 1997, months before the release of what would become their best-selling album, The Colour and the Shape.
In addition to their tour the band was also set to perform at the 2022 Grammy Awards on April 3. This of course is cancelled as the Foo Fighter’s take all the time they need to heal. Rest in Peace Taylor Hawkins, you are greatly missed.
