The rock band will take time to mourn their dear friend and colleague.

The Foo Fighters have cancelled their upcoming Grammys performance following the shocking death of band member Taylor Hawkins.

The 50-year-od drummer, who was a part of the rock troupe since 1997, passed away last Friday. The Band were in South America when Hawkins passed; he had been suffering from chest pain while in Bogotá, Colombia.

Since his passing, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters have cancelled remaining tour dates, including their Grammys appearance which was set for this weekend. Taking place in Las Vegas this Sunday night, their appearance was announced just days before his tragic passing.

The band issued a statement on social media, writing: "Let's take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we've made together."

While the Foo Fighters will not be appearing at the Grammys, they have been honoured with three nominations this year. The band is up for Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song.

It's believed that this weekend's Grammys will feature a tribute to Taylor Hawkins. Via Variety, Jack Sussman of DBS said: "We will honour his memory in some way. We want to figure out what is the right thing to do that is respectful to everyone involved. We’re patient. We’ll be planning right up until the very end."

The Dave Grohl-led band recently made their feature film debut with a horror/comedy named 'Studio 666'. The gory/tongue-in-cheek film sees the Hall of Fame rockers move into a mysterious mansion that turns Grohl into something supernatural.

Other performers lined up for this weekend's Grammys include Billie Eilish, BTS, John Legend, J Balvin, Lil Nas X, Brandi Carlile and Olivia Rodrigo. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak will reportedly open the event, with an In Memorium segment for Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim to. be performed by Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt and Rachel Zegler.
