Alanis Morissette paid tribute to her former bandmate and late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, during her recent performance at the O2 Arena in London on Tuesday, June 28.
The singer is currently on tour for the 25th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill. Hawkins had joined her live band for that album’s tour in 1995 and continued to perform with her until 1997, when he joined Foo Fighters.
During her performance of “Ironic,” pictures of Hawkins were shown on the screen on stage behind her with a message, “In Memory of Taylor Hawkins.”
Hawkins died at age 50 on March 25 in a hotel room in Bogota, Colombia, while on tour with the Foos.
Foo Fighters have scheduled two all-star global events in celebration of Hawkins’ memory and his legacy as a global rock icon. The concerts will take place on September 3 at London’s Wembley Stadium and on September 27 at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles.
The L.A. event features Morissette, Miley Cyrus, Pink, LeAnn Rimes, John Paul Jones, Nancy Wilson, Krist Novoselic, Greg Kurstin, Gene Simmons, Nikki Sixx, Chad Smith, and more.
Liam Gallagher, Josh Homme, Chrissie Hynde, Brian May, Mark Ronson, Stewart Copeland, Geddy Lee, and Roger Taylor are among those set to perform in London.
