After the tragic loss of drummer Taylor Hawkins on March 25, The Foo Fighters have cancelled the remaining tour dates they have scheduled for 2022.

The band shared the news in a statement from their representative :

It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins. We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.
 
With Love,
 
Foo Fighters

The tour, which was in support of the band’s 10th studio album Medicine at Midnight, was set to take the band to stadiums, amphitheaters, and festivals throughout the country from May through August of 2022.

Hawkins died on Friday (March 25) in Colombia while on tour with his band, Foo Fighters. Colombian officials are in the midst of investigating the passing.

The news broke of Hawkins’ death that same night. The Foo Fighters released a heartbroken statement, writing on Twitter: “The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins, the statement read. His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever. Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”
