At a Taylor Hawkins tribute concert, Travis Barker, Miley Cyrus, and Dave Grohl perform.
At the Taylor Hawkins tribute event held in Los Angeles on September 27, performers included Miley Cyrus, Dave Grohl, and Travis Barker.
The concert at the Kia Forum got underway with guitarist Alain Johannes and Grohl’s 16-year-old daughter Violet playing a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
“Welcome to the Los Angeles Taylor Hawkins tribute concert,” the Foo Fighters said as they entered the stage after them.
Make it loud for Taylor because this is hometown s***.
The purpose of the event, according to Grohl, is to “honour this guy who has influenced our lives” and “spend some time in [Hawkins’s] creative imagination, which could be a very terrible place.”
Joan Jett, Chevy Metal, Kesha, Coattail Riders, Mark King, Rufus Taylor, Joe Walsh and the James Gang, Cyrus, Mötley Crüe, and Def Leppard were among the other performers on the show that went on.
Jett performed the Runaways’ “Cherry Bomb” with the support of Barker and the Foo Fighters.
Chevy Metal, who was presented on stage by Hawkins’ 16-year-old son Shane, came after her performance. Shane describes the ensemble as “one of the best f***ing cover bands I’ve ever heard in my life,” adding, “I’m pretty terrified.”
They performed “Rock and Roll” by Led Zeppelin.
Then, just after Josh Homme, Grohl, Alain Johannes, and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones played Elton John’s famous song “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” Kesha made her appearance on stage wearing a silver cape and performing David Bowie’s “Heroes.”
Def Lep’s Joe Elliott and Miley Cyrus performed “Photograph” together near the end of the event, which was then followed by Mötley Crüe.
Gohl remarked of the American heavy metal band, “You really can’t do a gig in Los Angeles without having these guys come jam with you.
The Music Support and MusiCares charities, which were chosen by the Hawkins family, who helped organise the event, will receive money from concert tickets and product sales.
Following a special performance at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 3, Grohl paid tribute to his “bandmate” and “brother,” Hawkins, at this performance.
As Grohl urged the crowd to “sing and dance, and laugh and cry” in memory of the band’s drummer Hawkins, who was discovered dead in his hotel room in Colombia in March, thousands of fans cheered.
Along with Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, and Rami Jaffee, Hawkins played for more than 20 years in the band led by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.
After travelling with Alanis Morissette earlier, he joined Foo Fighters in 1997. Hawkins co-starred in the band’s recently released movie, Studio 666, them.
The band cancelled their upcoming tour dates and a scheduled appearance at the Grammy Awards after his passing in March.
