During a recent concert, Alanis Morissette took the time to pay tribute to singer Taylor Hawkins, who died of an overdose. According to Morissette, Hawkins’ big break came not from playing with the Foo Fighters, but with her touring band. In the following article, we’ll discuss Morissette’s comments and the message she has for fans.
Alanis Morissette’s tribute to Taylor Hawkins
Earlier this month, Alanis Morissette played a tribute to the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. The concert was organised by Hawkins’ family, and took place at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. It was the first of two nights at the venue, and tickets were sold out.
The performance saw Morissette perform a couple of classics, such as ‘Ironic’, and a song dedicated to Hawkins. After her performance, she exited stage left to a standing ovation. The band then performed the Foo Fighters’ hit ‘You Oughta Know’, which Hawkins had played with them on tour.
At the end of her performance, Hawkins’ image was displayed on the stage behind her. This was done in honour of Hawkins, who passed away in March this year, aged 50.
The show, which included performances from many of the musical legends who performed with Hawkins in the past, was a benefit for the Hawkins family’s charities. Musicares, Music Support, and Musicares’ partner, Music for Life, all received donations from the concert.
