On Tuesday, the Foo Fighters shared an official statement confirming that they have cancelled all upcoming scheduled performances in the wake of the sudden, shocking and tragic death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, who passed away March 25 while the band was in Colombia.

The full statement: from Dave Grohl, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Rami Jaffee and the band’s management team:

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. We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. 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.

With Love,

Foo Fighters

Hawkins was found dead in his hotel room prior to the Foo Fighters’ planned headlining performance at Lollapalooza Brasil, where he would have been reunited with longtime friend Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction.

In a video eulogy shared on his social media pages, Farrell spoke at length about the kind soul that Hawkins was, the deepness of the connection they felt as friends and musical peers. The video concludes with a voice message sent by Hawkins to Farrell and his wife, Etty Lau Farrell. It’s very emotional and difficult to watch, but it’s a beautiful tribute to a fallen friend and comrade.
