Dave Grohl Returns To Live Shows By Joining Paul McCartney And Bruce Springsteen After Taylor Hawkins’ Death
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently returned to stage by joining Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen for his first performance after Taylor Hawkins’ passing.
Loved by anyone for his heart-warming smile, positivity, and great personality, Taylor Hawkins passed away on March 20, 2022. Foo Fighters described the news as ‘untimely and tragic’ in their public announcement, and many artists who crossed paths with Hawkins took to their social media accounts to pay tribute to the drummer.
At the time of the sad news, Foo Fighters were on tour in South America. The band eventually canceled the rest of their tour dates and other events to give themselves time to grieve. After some time, the Foos decided to pay tribute to their beloved friend with The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts, which will take place between September 3 and 27.
On June 15, Foo Fighters revealed more details about the tribute concerts. In their tweet, the band stated that the tickets would be available on June 17. They also announced various artists would accompany them for the shows, including Wolfgang Van Halen, Liam Gallagher, Geddy Lee, Brian May, and Roger Taylor.
After Hawkins’ passing, Dave Grohl didn’t make any live appearances on stage. However, on June 25, at the end of his set at the Glastonbury festival, Paul McCartney invited Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen to join him. Together, they performed The Beatles’ song ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ and Wings’ ‘Band on the Run.’
