Foo Fighters fan page has noted that ‘Closing Time’ could be a new track that is credited to all 6 members of Foo Fighters. It was added to the BMI publishing database in the past few days. There is speculation that a piece of previously unheard music will be used in some form at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concerts.
Taylor Hawkins concert is set to take place soon
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins shockingly passed away at the age of 50. The band was due to play on the same day of his death. The Foos were scheduled to play at the Festival Estereo Picnic in Bogota, Colombia. This led to the band canceling the rest of their South American tour. Recently, a video clip surfaced on the internet which saw Red Hot Chili Peppers paying subtle tribute to Hawkins.
Foo Fighters fans were thrilled after the band frontman Dave Grohl’s daughter, Violet Grohl made announcement about the tribute concert. However, it seems the fans have slammed Ticketmaster after their tickets for the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert were suddenly cancelled.
“Important information about your booking…
We have had to cancel your tickets due to booking irregularities.
We’ve already issued a refund for your tickets, so you don’t need to do a thing- you’ll see a credit onto the card you used within 5 working days.”
A source close to The Foo Fighters noted that genuine fans would receive their tickets and that Ticketmaster were contacting everyone affected by the cancellations.
They said: “In a bid to stop touts getting their hands on tickets and selling them at an astronomical cost, some group bookings or bookings made under a suspicious email address are being cancelled. Ticketmaster will then contact those people individually and once they have verified they are not touts, their tickets will be issued to them. Fans who have had their tickets cancelled will be contacted by Ticketmaster and they will still be going to the concert.”
The exact number of concealed tickets has not been known and rest assured, the show is still on.
