Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins dies aged 50

Foo Fighters will star Liam Gallagher, Brian May and Dave Chappelle for a tribute concert for late drummer Taylor Hawkins in September.

The legendary musician was found dead in a hotel room at the age of 50 in Bogota, Colombia in March, hours before he and his band performed.

No cause of death has been released, although a preliminary toxicology report revealed traces of 10 substances in his system, including opioids and marijuana.

In honor of Taylor, Mark Ronson, former The Police drummer Stewart Copeland, Chrissie Hynde, Jane’s Addiction and Supergrass bassist Chris Chaney will also take the stage at London’s Wembley Stadium.

A statement from Foo Fighters said more repertoire will be announced for the tribute performance, scheduled for Saturday, September 3 and held in partnership with the Hawkins family.

This is followed by a second show on September 27 at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles, with an unannounced lineup.

The performances are expected to be the band’s first since Hawkins was found dead in his hotel room in Colombia in March.

Hawkins has played in a band led by former Nirvana drummer and lead singer Dave Grohl for more than two decades.

He joined the Foo Fighters in 1997 after a previous tour with Alanis Morrissette. Hawkins also starred with the band in their recently released film, Studio 666.

After his death in March, the band canceled an upcoming tour date as well as a scheduled performance at the Grammys.

They went on to win all three categories for which they were nominated at the 64th annual awards ceremony but did not attend.
