Foo Fighters Cancel Remaining Tour Dates, Including Sioux Falls Show [UPDATED]
In making the announcement, the band issued a statement:
'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.'
The group's 2022 tour would have marked their first extensive North American run following the 2021 LP Medicine at Midnight. They played in various live settings throughout last year, including the reopening show at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
The Minneapolis show was August 3 at U.S. Bank Stadium.
UPDATE (6:58 PM): Ticketmaster has issued the following statement about refunds for the canceled show:
‘A refund will be processed automatically for you. It will be processed to the original method of payment used at time of purchase, once funds are received from the Event Organizer, which is usually completed within 30 days.’
Foo Fighters were touring in South America when Hawkins died — his last show took place March 20 at Lollapalooza Argentina. The drummer was found in his hotel room in Bogota, Columbia, where the band was preparing for a gig.
Bogata's Secretariat of Health issued a statement noting that an ambulance responded to an emergency call that Hawkins was suffering chest pains. An early toxicology report stated that the musician had 10 different psychoactive substances in his system — including marijuana, tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opioids — but stopped short of categorizing his death as an overdose. An exact cause of death has yet to be determined.
