“We just found out about this two weeks ago, because Foo Fighters were supposed to play here tonight. We love the Foo Fighters, and we love our brother Taylor Hawkins. So this means a lot to us to be able to play for them.”
Smith then went on to have the audience chant “We love you, Taylor.” Notably, Hawkins’ widow Alison and his bandmate Dave Grohl were reportedly in attendance.
