The Foo Fighters have finally broken the silence and will return this fall, with two special tribute concerts honoring late drummer Taylor Hawkins.

The band announced the shows on Wednesday, in its first public statement since Hawkins’ death in late March: “For our dear friend, our bada** bandmate, our beloved brother…Foo Fighters and The Hawkins family bring you the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts.” The first show will be held Sept. 3rd at Wembley Stadium in London, followed by a Sept. 27th show at Kia Forum in Los Angeles.

More details – including the lineup for each show and when tickets go on sale – will be announced shortly.

Who do you think should play drums for these tribute shows?
