The Foo Fighters are putting on a tribute concert to honour their former bandmate and drummer Taylor Hawkins, who passed away in March 2022 at the age of 50. The remaining band members, Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee, said they wanted to organise the event to honour their “beloved bandmate”.

The concert will take place in London’s Wembley Stadium on September 3rd, followed by a sister event at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on September 27th. This comes after the band cancelled all upcoming engagements following Hawkins’ death.

Here’s what we know about the concert so far, including the line up and how to get tickets.
