Taylor Hawkins’ son Shane Hawkins played drums with his late father’s bandmates last night during Foo Fighters’ concert in London. Shane emerged for an encore performance of “I’ll Stick Around.”

The show at London Stadium was a family affair as frontman Dave Grohl’s daughter Violet Grohl once again joined Foo Fighters for a performance of “Show Me How.” Thursday’s concert saw Dave Grohl follow the collaboration with his daughter by dedicating a subsequent performance of “Aurora” to Taylor Hawkins’ family who were in attendance.

Shane Hawkins had previously played drums with Foo Fighters at the two tribute concerts held in honor of his father, which were held months after Taylor Hawkins tragically died at age 50 in March 2022. Shane Hawkins performed “My Hero” at both of those concerts, as well as “I’ll Stick Around” at the event held in Los Angeles.

“Thank you for waiting three hours to come play drums with us,” Dave Grohl said as Shane Hawkins took over the drum kit from Josh Freese last night in London. “We particularly like it when he plays this song. It’s called ‘I’ll Stick Around.’ It sounds like this!”

The band then tore through the track from the 1995 self-titled debut Foo Fighters album with Grohl giving shouts of encouragement to Hawkins as he pounded away at the song played many times by his late father.
