Alanis Morissette has performed a heartrending tribute to Foo Fighters’ beloved late drummer, Taylor Hawkins who died in n March this year, at the age of 50.
Hawkins was a member of Morissette’s band during her explosive breakout Jagged Little Pill era, performing on the supporting tour that ran from 1995-1997. It was also at this time that Hawkins first crossed paths with the Foo Fighters, who were the opening band on the tour.
At her London show, Morissette performed Ironic in honour of her late friend and bandmate, with tour footage of Hawkins projected on a screen behind the stage, with ‘In Memory of Taylor Hawkins’ displayed at the end. Watch below.
