Foo Fighters’ First Concerts Back Will Include Intimate 450-Capacity Club Show
Foo Fighters' first shows back since the death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins will include a special club gig at the 450-person capacity The Atlantis.
The new Washington, D.C., venue next door to the U.S. capital city's iconic 9:30 Club aims to recapture that venue's original layout and atmosphere.
This week, Rolling Stone reported about the intimate Foo Fighters concert, which will inaugurate a string of shows at The Atlantis through the summer. Foo Fighters play The Atlantis on May 30, which is the 9:30 Club's 44th anniversary, per venue owner I.M.P.
But it's not yet known who will take up the drum throne for Hawkins, though rumors about the replacement abound. Last year, Foo Fighters held star-studded tributes for Hawkins in Los Angeles and London. The drummer is survived by his wife, Alison, and their children, Oliver Shane, Annabelle and Everleigh.
Foo Fighters to Headline in 2023
At the start of the year, Foo Fighters made good on a promise to fans, announcing gigs after releasing a statement last December that said they'd move forward after the March 2022 death of Hawkins at age 50.

"Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were — and without Taylor, we know that we're going to be a different band going forward," they wrote.
Foo Fighters added, "We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you. And we know that when we see you again — and we will soon — he'll be there in spirit with all of us every night."
