Rock Report 3/31/22

Foo Fighters have issued a new statement in the wake of the tragic death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, confirming the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates.

The message appeared on social media mid-day Tuesday (March 29) and, in it, the band described the loss of Hawkins as “staggering” and called him a “brother.” As a collective, Foo Fighters lamented that they would not be able to see their fans and perform for them and urged everyone to cherish what is in front of them while taking the necessary steps to grieve and heal.

There’s a lot of great rock history combined as Collective Soul and Switchfoot will team up for a rather extensive 40-date summer tour. The two bands will be hitting the road with a run that starts off July 15 in Gary, Indiana, and continues through to Sept. 24 finale in San Antonio, Texas.

The world’s largest music festival is back Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, Anthrax , Skillet, Pop Evil, Ayron Jones and more are all going to be there. Here’s who’s on the lineup for Summerfest 2022.  The lakefront festival has 12 different stages and has been a tradition in Milwaukee for over 50 years.
