Axl Rose has dedicated Guns N’ Roses‘ recently concluded European tour to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.

Over the weekend, in a tweet following the tour’s closing show in Germany, Rose wrote, “It’s just a simple gesture n’ it’s awkward dealing with the gravity of something like this but in an effort to pay [our] respects we’d like to dedicated this tour to our friend Taylor Hawkins.”

“Taylor was a really great guy and it was always great to see him!” the “Welcome to the Jungle” singer continued. “He was a great n’ always welcome part of touring these last few years! This is such a horrible thing and [our] hearts go out to his family, friends, band manes and everyone who love him.”

Hawkins passed away unexpectedly on March 25 in Bogotá, Colombia, ahead of a Foo Fighters show scheduled there for later that night. He was 50 years old.

Foo Fighters will be holding a pair of tribute shows to Hawkins taking place September 3 in London and September 27 in Los Angeles.

Also in his note, Rose thanked Carrie Underwood, who joined GN’R for two shows in London to sing “Paradise City” and “Sweet Child o’ Mine.”

“She’s AMAZING!!” Rose wrote of the country star. He added that Underwood was also a “real lifesaver,” alluding to the vocal issues he was battling during the second London show, which forced GN’R to postpone their next show in Scotland.

“At least someone could sing!!” Rose wrote.
