The Daily Mail reports that the body of FOO FIGHTERS drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died last Friday in Colombia, was flown back to the U.S. on Tuesday (March 29).
Images were published in the Daily Mail showing Taylor’s casket being loaded onto a chartered plane at El Dorado International Airport in Bogota.
FOO FIGHTERS’ tour manager Gus Brandt reportedly remained in Colombia after the remaining members of the band returned to the U.S. the day after Hawkins’ passing.
On Tuesday, FOO FIGHTERS announced that they were canceling all of their previously announced concerts as a result of Hawkins’s death.
“It is with great sadness that FOO FIGHTERS confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins,” the band said in a statement. “We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, 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. With Love, FOO FIGHTERS.”
An official cause of death for Hawkins hasn’t yet been released.
