The late drummer performed his final song, “Everlong,” at Lollapalooza Argentina March 20, just five days before his death, per Rolling Stone, citing fan footage.

The 19-song performance included Hawkins singing the lead on Queen’s classic “Somebody to Love” and a cover of Jane’s Addiction’s “Been Caught Stealing.” He wrapped up his performance with “Everlong.” 

“I don’t say goodbye,” Dave Grohl told the crowd before starting the show. “I don’t like to say goodbye. I know that we’ll always come back. If you come back, we’ll come back. Will you come back? If you come back, we’ll come back, so then I won’t have to say goodbye.”

They added that their “hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”
