The shows will feature Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, and Rami Jaffee coming together with the Hawkins family to celebrate the life and music of Taylor Hawkins, who tragically passed away earlier this year.

The shows will unite Foo Fighters and musicians Taylor idolized, with lineups to be announced shortly. All ticketing and sales dates will also be available via Foo Fighters' website here. Foo Fighters originally canceled all their tour dates in the wake of Hawkins' death, as well as their appearance at the GRAMMY award show happening this Sunday, April 3. These two shows will be their first public appearances as a band since the tragedy.

Hawkins impressive résumé over the years included drumming for Foo Fighters from 1997 to present day, as well as forming his own bands like Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders and NHC featuring Jane's Addiction members Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney.
