Taylor Hawkins Tribute takes over Kia Forum in Los Angeles for a grand celebration of life

Posted by on September 29, 2022


After a tear-jerking livestream on September 3rd of this year from Wembley Stadium, the Foo Fighters along with the Hawkins Family, took to the stage once again Tuesday Night (27th) at Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California. While the event wasn’t livestreamed like the previous showcase, it was still another star studded event with an all-star guest list bringing their support for the family of the Foo Fighter’s late drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Fans in attendance were treated to songs he loved, while celebrating his memory with those who knew him the closest.
