The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts will benefit charities in both the U.S. and the UK, chosen by the Hawkins family. Beneficiaries and further details will be announced soon.
The concert will cover the full spectrum of Hawkins’ musical career, from the Foos to his solo work with projects like The Coattail Riders. It will also be the first time the surviving Foo Fighters members have played publicly since Hawkins’ sudden March 25 death in Colombia.
