Taylor Hawkins Son Steals The Show At Tribute Ceremony For His Father: The Foo Fighters performed the first of two concerts on Saturday to remember their late drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Numerous musical legends performed during the six-hour concert at Wembley Stadium in London, including Paul McCartney, Lars Ulrich of Metallica, Brian Johnson of AC/DC, Stewart Copeland of The Police, The James Gang, Justin Hawkins of The Darkness, Geddy Lee, and Alex Lifeson of Rush, Travis Barker of Them Crooked Vultures, and Roger Taylor and Brian May of Queen, among many others.
To begin the concert, Foo Fighters vocalist Dave Grohl stood next to his bandmates and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we’ve gathered here to commemorate the life, the music, and the love of our dear friend, our bandmate, our brother Taylor Hawkins.” “Those of you who knew him personally know that nobody else was capable of making you grin, laugh, dance, or sing the way he was. And I’m sure those who watched him from afar felt the same way.
As a result, we’ve gotten together tonight to celebrate him with his family, closest friends, musical idols, and sources of greatest inspiration. Sing, dance, laugh, cry, f*cking scream, and create some other loud noises so that he can hear us right away. You know what, after all? It’s going to be a long night. After numerous guest appearances, the Foo Fighters took the stage to play their songs for the first time since Hawkins’ passing.

The song “Times Like These” was introduced by Dave Grohl with tears in his eyes, and a brief pause as his voice broke. Through the challenging moment, the crowd encouraged him, and shortly after that, the band started to rock out to the song. Josh Freese, Travis Barker, Nandi Bushnell, Rufus Tiger Taylor, Omar Hakims, and last but not least, Hawkins’ son Shane, who played on “My Hero,” were among the cast of varying drummers.
Undoubtedly the night star, Shane’s performance quickly became famous once it was broadcasted on Paramount and YouTube. The performance elicited strong reactions from many people. Scott Ian, the guitarist for Anthrax, remarked of Shane Hawkins: “He performed like it was his reign. Not a dry eye in the place.
Thank you, Shane. Frontman Dee Snider of Twisted Sister wrote on Twitter: “Holy sh*t. Chills. Simply cool. Beautiful.” On September 27, the Kia Forum in Los Angeles will host the second Taylor Hawkins tribute performance. Numerous performers from the London event will be on that show, along with Miley Cyrus, Joan Jett, Gene Simmons, Nikki Sixx, and Chad Smith.
