Even more artists have signed on to appear at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert sset for next September in London and Los Angeles. Hawkins, the drummer for the Foo Fighters, died on March 25th at age 50 after suffering an alleged drug overdose in Columbia.
Loudersound.com reported Dave Grohl‘s Nirvana bandmate, bassist Krist Novoselic, Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones, Nile Rodgers, Pink, Foo Fighters’ producer Greg Kurstin, former Queens Of The Stone Age collaborator Alain Johannes, and 12-year-old drum prodigy Nandi Bushell will be on board for the September 3rd show at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The September 27th show at The Forum in L.A. will now also include Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson, LeAnn Rimes, Miley Cyrus, and Joan Jett.
When we last caught up with the late-Taylor Hawkins, he explained that Foo Fighters are actually bigger in other territories across the globe: “As a band, we’ve always actually been a little bit bigger outside of America. England, we do really well and Australia we do really well and a lot of parts of Europe we do well. And we do well in America, but mainly in the big cities, y’know. We’re not huge necessarily in the Midwest and places like that because, frankly, America’s big.”
