Foo Fighters Scheduled to Play SPAC, What Happens Next for the Band?
Less than one week ago we got the news that Taylor Hawkins, drummer for Foo Fighters, had passed away at the age of 50. As stunning and upsetting as that news is to fans around the world, imagine what it is like for Taylor's family and bandmates.
Not only have we lost a charismatic, talented artist but his family lost a husband and father. For his band they lost a brother, friend and business partner. So, now what happens to the business of Foo Fighters?
Foo Fighters were scheduled for a World Wide Tour throughout 2022 with a stop at Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Tuesday July 19th. Today Foo Fighters have made a decision regarding those immediate plans. The decision is to cancel the tour.
Saratoga Performing Arts Center officially list the July show as cancelled. A few years ago Taylor's other band Chevy Metal performed in the Capital Region at the Rock 'N Derby festival in Schaghticoke. Chevy Metal was a garage style band covering a variety of Classic Rock tunes. Often times Taylor Hawkins would be singing rather than drumming. Here is a clip from their NY performance in 2015.
