Foo Fighters 3/30/22

With the sudden death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, the Foo Fighters have decided to cancel all scheduled concerts. The group was set to be on the road in North America and Down Under from May through December. There has been no mention of any future recording or performing plans.

Taylor Hawkins died on March 25th at age 50 after suffering an alleged drug overdose in Columbia. According to Britain’s Daily Mail, Hawkins is said to have had a “heart (that) weighed double that of men his age (weighing) least 600 grams, double the average of 300 to 350 grams.” Hawkins also allegedly had 10 different drugs in his system during the postmortem.

The Columbian newspaper Semana reported Hawkins suffered cardiovascular collapse “after binging on a cocktail of drugs.” The surviving Foo Fighters returned to Los Angeles on Sunday (March 27th).

The Foo Fighters’ official statement reads:

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.

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 the music and memories we’ve made together.

With Love, Foo Fighters
