A lot of tributes to Taylor Hawkins has been held in different parts of the world and now the surviving members of Foo Fighters have recently announced two tribute concerts for the late drummer for later this year.

The “all-star rock and roll shows” will take place on Sept. 3 at London’s Wembley Stadium and on Sept. 27 at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. The performance lineups, ticketing information and on-sale dates will be announced soon on the band’s official website.

The band posted the official poster on their Instagram along with the caption:

“For our dear friend, our badass bandmate, our beloved brother…Foo Fighters and The Hawkins family bring you the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts.”

While the band released a statement that read:

“Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee will come together with the Hawkins family to celebrate the life, music and love of their husband, father, brother and bandmate with the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts.”

The statement continued:

“As one of the most respected and beloved figures in modern music, Taylor’s monolithic talent and magnetic personality endeared him to millions of fans, peers, friends and fellow musical legends the world over.

“Millions mourned his untimely passing on March 25, with passionate and sincere tributes coming from fans as well as musicians Taylor idolized. The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts will unite several of those artists, the Hawkins family and of course his Foo Fighters brothers in celebration of Taylor’s memory and his legacy as a global rock icon —his bandmates and his inspirations playing the songs that he fell in love with, and the ones he brought to life.”

Following the tragic news, Foo Fighters have decided to cancel their upcoming tour dates. Their last live show with Hawkins was at the Lollapalooza Argentina on March 20. He was found dead on March 25 in his hotel room in Bogota, Columbia, where the band was scheduled to perform at the Festival Estereo Picnic.
