On September 3, the memorial concert will be broadcast live from Wembley Stadium in London.
Taylor Hawkins’ family and the band Foo Fighters are organising an unique memorial for the late musician. The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert will consist of two performances, the first of which will be shown live on ParamountPlus on Saturday, September 3, at Wembley Stadium in London.
The Hawkins family is teaming forces with Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, Rami Jafee, and the Foo Fighters to “honour the life, music, and love of their husband, father, brother, and bandmate,” according to a statement on the band’s website.
“Music is a strong link, and we are thrilled to honour Taylor Hawkins’ long legacy by bringing together the portfolio of brands and assets from Paramount,” said Bob Bakish, president and chief executive officer of Paramount.
Taylor was not just a fantastic drummer and musician, but also one of the most fervent super lovers of music the world has ever seen, said Bruce Gillmer, president of music, music talent, programming & events, Paramount, and chief content officer, music at ParamountPlus. His extensive corpus of work will carry on his contagious spirit and distinctive ability. We are excited to work with the Foo Fighters and the Hawkins family to use Paramount’s broad global presence to reflect Taylor’s influence on audiences everywhere through this unique memorial event.
Along with a special appearance from Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock, the tribute will feature recording artists such as Travis Barker, Nandi Bushell, Martin Chambers, Chevy Metal, Chris Chaney, Nile Rodgers, Stewart Copeland, Mark Ronson, Kesha, Luke Spiller, Brian Johnson, and Josh Freese.
On September 27, a second homage concert will be held at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. For information on how to watch Saturday’s memorial for free, continue reading.
