Foo Fighters cancel tour following death of Taylor Hawkins
Foo Fighters have confirmed the remainder of their tour will be cancelled following the sudden death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Hawkins passing was announced on Saturday in Colombia before the band’s show in Bogota. The 50 year old was found unresponsive in his hotel room and attempts to resuscitate him failed.
Foo Fighters were due to perform at the Grammys on the 3rd April before continuing on a number of American dates in April and May. The band were scheduled to play to Europe in June with more shows in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand up to December.
The band posted a statement online announcing the news of the cancellation and telling their fans to “pull their loved ones closer”.
