The concerts will be held with the remaining members of the band – Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Schifflet, Pat Smir and Rami Jaffe – on September 3 at Wembley Stadium in London and September 27 at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.
For the show, the band reunited with the Hawkins family.
“I express my deepest gratitude and admiration to the global Foo Fighters community and Taylor fans for the love each and every one of you has shown for our beloved Taylor. Your kindness has been an invaluable consolation to me and a time of incredible grief for my family.”
Hawkins, 50, died March 25 in Bogota, Colombia, just hours before taking to the stage for a Foo Fighters festival stereo picnic. The band immediately canceled the remaining dates of the tour.
Hawkins joined Foo Fighters in 1997 and first appeared on the tour with the band in support of their second album, The Color and the Shape.
