The band made the announcement yesterday, saying the death of Hawkins was a “staggering loss”.
“It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins,” the band said.
“We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take the time to give, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.”

Hawkins died Friday night at the age of fifty from a suspected drug overdose.
In a statement following an forensic examination into Hawkins’ death, the Colombian Attorney General’s Office said a preliminary urine toxicology test indicated the presence of 10 different substances, including marijuana, antidepressants and opioids.
“The Attorney General’s Office will continue to investigate and will duly inform the findings of forensic examinations in due time.”
Rest In Peace, Taylor.
