Alanis Morissette has dedicated her latest single, “Ironic”, to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. And in a recent interview with the BBC, she spoke about her loss.
Alanis Morissette dedicates “Ironic” to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins
On March 25th, Alanis Morissette paid tribute to her former bandmate Taylor Hawkins. Hawkins had passed away earlier this year at the age of 50. As part of her concert in London, Morissette dedicated her hit ‘Ironic’ to him.
During the song, images of Hawkins were displayed behind the stage. The show was filmed, and footage was compiled into a short video montage that featured clips of celebrities singing along to the song.
The show was Alanis’ first hometown performance in more than a decade. The show was part of a tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her album Jagged Little Pill. The performance was a success, with fans bursting into applause during the show.
The video montage included snippets of Morissette’s career, and included footage of the singer singing along to her hits. It was a moving and touching moment, and was also a reminder of what a special friend and collaborator Hawkins was.
While on her tour, Morissette has also been dealing with laryngitis. She has not been very active on social media. However, she did appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in January. And she recently sang the Dave Matthews Band’s ‘Spoon’ as a guest vocalist.
In honor of her late bandmate, Alanis is now touring Europe to pay tribute to Hawkins. She will also be part of a special tribute to Rich Hawkins in Los Angeles.
Foo Fighters plan two tribute concerts to Taylor Hawkins
Foo Fighters have scheduled two tribute concerts in September to honor late drummer Taylor Hawkins. A concert in London will take place on September 3 and a show in Los Angeles will be held on September 27. This will be the first live performances for the band since Hawkins passed away in March.
The Foo Fighters have teamed up with the Hawkins Family to create the two tribute shows. In addition to the musicians who will appear in the show, the lineup will include a variety of guests, including Alanis Morissette, Dave Chappelle, Pink, Nirvana, and more.
The second concert will take place on September 27, also at KIA Forum in Los Angeles. The show will feature a number of guests, including Steward Copeland, Omar Hakim, and Chris Chaney.
The lineup will be announced soon. There will be special editions of the concert that will air on CBS, MTV, and Paramount+. The show will also stream online via Pluto TV.
The tribute concert will also benefit Music Support. The organization helps musicians deal with mental health issues. All merchandise sales will also help the organization.
The first tribute will be at Wembley Stadium on September 3. It will begin at 11:30 a.m. EDT and 4:30 p.m. BST. This will be a benefit show for the organization and will be broadcast on Paramount+ in the US. In the UK, viewers can watch the show on Pluto TV.
Alison Hawkins’ message to fans
It’s been four months since Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins died, but his wife Alison has broken her silence on the matter. She’s posted a statement about the musician on her Instagram page. While her statement is certainly the polar opposite of the band’s official one, she hasn’t forgotten the void left in her husband’s absence.
After hearing the news about his death, Alison Hawkins has publicly expressed her gratitude for the outpouring of support from the band’s fans. As a result, the band has been able to hold two special tribute concerts in honor of their fallen colleague.
It’s not hard to see why a tribute show would be the best way to pay tribute to a rockstar like Hawkins. Having had an extensive career, Hawkins had the chance to perform with some of his favorite musicians. And with the band’s recent lineup change, the opportunity to bring Hawkins’ oeuvre to life in concert was a no brainer.
The band has teamed up with several of their artists to honor their fallen colleague. The lineup will include artists such as Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, Nate Mendel, and Dave Grohl. They’ve also announced their plans for a Best of You tribute band that’ll unite their favorite songs with other artists who’ve been inspired by the deceased.
