Foo Fighters hint at 2023 return

The Foo Fighters are hinting at a return in 2023 as they share a year-end message to fans on social media.

"As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us,” shared the group. “Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years our fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together. A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music.

“Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were – and without Taylor, we know that we're going to be a different band going forward. We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you and we know that when we see you again – and we will soon – he'll be there in spirit with all of us every night."

Hawkins passed away in his hotel room in Bogota, Colombia on March 25 at the age of 50 while the Foo Fighters were playing a series of shows in South America.

The band hosted two tribute concerts for Hawkins in September that saw rock royalty join them in celebrating the drummer’s spirit and legacy.

The Foo Fighters were recently named the No. 3 Rock News Artist Of The Year and delivered the No. 7 Rock News Story Of The Year as part of the 2022 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
