THERE GOES MY HERO

Foo Fighters to honor Taylor Hawkins with special tribute concert at the Forum in September.

Great news for L.A. Foo Fighters fans. The hit-making band is set to play a tribute concert in honor of late drummer Taylor Hawkins on September 27 at the Forum.

The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert will feature an all-star lineup of guest performers, which will be announced at a later date.

Texas native Hawkins, who was raised in Laguna Beach, died on March 25 in Bogota, Colombia, where he was scheduled to perform with the Foos at the Festival Estereo Picnic, before headlining Lollapalooza Brazil. An official cause of death has not been released, but toxicological tests reportedly found a number of different narcotics in his system.

In a statement, the late musician’s wife, Alison Hawkins, thanked For Fighters fans for the “outpouring of love.”

“Taylor was honored to be a part of the Foo Fighters and valued his dream role in the band every minute of his 25 years with them,” said Hawkins.

Tickets for the L.A. tribute concert go on sale on June 17 at FooFighters.com.

The L.A. concert will be preceded by a September 3 tribute concert at London’s Wembley Stadium. The U.S. and U.K. performances are the only two shows announced.
