Foo Fighters celebrated Hawkins’ memory and music at a special gig in London. The whole line-up for the show had been leaked early, featuring a reunion of Dave Grohl’s Them Crooked Vultures. While performing 1997 hit ‘Monkey Wrench’, Grohl messed up the performance of the song as he seemingly forgot the lyrics to part of the song. ‘The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts’ also take over LA’s Kia Forum on September 27. The line-up was also released recently. It includes Motley Crue member Tommy Lee. It has now come to light that one of the singers is set to miss the show.
Luke Spiller set to miss the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert
The Struts frontman Luke Spiller took to his Instagram account and revealed that he has tested positive for the virus owing to the pandemic. Thus, he is going to pull out of the concert. He wrote:
“I’m absolutely devastated and heartbroker to announced that I will not be attending the Taylor Hawkins Tribute show tomorrow in LA due to testing positive for Covid. Bizarrely I honestly feel incredible but I’d never want to put Taylor’s loved ones of friends at risk. I will be with @foofighters in spirit celebrating the life of a great friend and mentor.
Love you all X”
Foo Fighters performed for a couple of hours at Wembley Stadium for a special tribute show for the late band drummer Taylor Hawkins on Saturday, September 3. Hawkins, the band’s drummer since 1997, died in Bogotá, Colombia on March 25. He was 50 years old.
Eddie Trunk recently stated on his radio show that the LA show is going to be filmed but not streamed. The Foo Fighters website has only ever mentioned streaming for Wembley. The Wembley livestream was a great experience for the fans. The show is set to start at 7pm and that is 10pm eastern. It will take place on a Tuesday night and not a weekend which makes it difficult. It has been noted that it will available to watch later.
