Ahead of the performances, Hawkins' wife Alison also released her first statement following the passing of her husband, expressing her gratefulness for the outpouring of love from Foo Fighters fans across the world.
“My deepest thanks admiration go out to the global Foo Fighters community and Taylor’s fans far and wide for the outpouring of love each and every one of you have shown our beloved Taylor.
"Your kindness has been an invaluable comfort for my family and me during this time of unimaginable grief."
She continued, "Taylor was honoured to be a part of the Foo Fighters and valued his dream role in the band every minute of his 25 years with them. We consider every band member and the extended Foo Fighters team our family.”
“Taylor’s endearing spirit and deep love of music will live on forever through the collaborations he so enjoyed having with other musicians and the catalog of songs he contributed to and created.
"In celebration of his life, it is now up to all of us who loved him most to honour Taylor’s legacy and the music he gave us.”
