Foo Fighters announce Taylor Hawkins tribute shows

Rock band Foo Fighters have announced two shows this September to commemorate the life of their drummer, Taylor Hawkins.

To honour their "dear bandmate," the band will perform at Wembley Stadium in London on September 3 and the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on September 27.

It'll be the first time they've performed live since he was discovered dead in his Colombian hotel room in March.

Since 1997, the 50-year-old had been the band's drummer.

Although a toxicology analysis revealed residues of ten substances in his body, including opiates, marijuana, and anti-depressants, no cause of death was given.

The mix of medications was not a factor, according to the investigators.

Hawkins joined the Foo Fighters in 1997, as they rose to prominence as one of the world's most popular rock bands.

He helped the band win 15 Grammy Awards, three of which were given posthumously this year

As a co-writer on songs like Best Of You, Learn To Fly, and All My Life.

Billie Eilish wore a black T-shirt with Hawkins' image during her performance at the Grammy Awards in April

Queen's Roger Taylor compared Hawkins' death to "losing a younger favourite brother."
