Foo Fighters will not perform at the 2022 Grammys on Sunday due to the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins.
According to Variety, the awards show will still feature a tribute to Hawkins, with CBS executive Jack Sussman telling the magazine, “We will honor his memory in some way.”
“We want to figure out what is the right thing to do that is respectful to everyone involved,” Sussman added. “We’re patient. We’ll be planning right up until the very end.”
Hawkins died last week in Colombian capital Bogotá, as the band was preparing for a concert at Festival Estéreo Picnic.
The 50-year-old artist died last Friday reportedly due to substance overdose.
The rock band has canceled all of their upcoming tour in the wake of Hawkins’ death.
“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 in a statement earlier this week.
“We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned,” they added. “Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.”
