Though the The Foo Fighters were included in rthe lineup last week, alongside this year’s most nominated artist Jon BatisteH.E.R., Nas, and Chris Stapleton, the rock band will not play the event.

In a statement by CBS executive Jack Sussman. a tribute to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died last week, is also in the works, “We will honor 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.”
