Red Hot Chili Peppers have joined the lineup for the 2022 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in place of Foo Fighters, who dropped off the lineup following the unexpected death of drummer Taylor Hawkins last month.

The “Under the Bridge” rockers will play on Sunday, May 1. Other headliners include The Who, Stevie Nicks and The Black Crowes.

Hawkins died March 25 ahead of a Foo Fighters show in Bogotá, Colombia, planned for that night. He was 50 years old.

On March 29, the Foos announced the cancellation of rest of their scheduled tour dates.

As previously reported, Nine Inch Nails will be replacing Foo Fighters on the Boston Calling and Welcome to Rockville lineups.
