On Sunday, Kourtney Kardashian shared some photos of her time with her husband Travis Barker as he stopped to play at the Taylor Hawkins tribute show at the Wembley Stadium in London. Hawkins nickname was The Hawk, and Kardashian posted a bird emoji to caption the pics in honor of the late drummer.
In the carousel, Kardashian and Barker were photographed walking hand-in-hand backstage in their rocker outfits. The Kardashians star was wearing a large white t-shirt over a black turtle neck that connected seamlessly to a pair black opera gloves. She wore knee-high black boots and carried a small black purse in one hand. From under her shirt hung pieces of fabric studded with oversized eyelets.
Barker wore a vintage Judas Priest t-shirt, a silver chain necklace, black sneakers and a matching beanie, and a pair of black pants painted with bleach spots. In addition to the Blink-182 drummer, the concert featured the Foo Fighters, who will be doing a second tribute show on September 27 at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles. All the musicians were good friends of Hawkins, who passed away in March.
“I don’t have the words. Sad to write this or to never see you again,” Barker wrote in a tribute at the time. “I’ll never forget Laguna Beach days when I was a trash man playing in a punk rock band and you were playing with Alanis. You’d come watch me play in dive bars and be like, ‘kid you’re a star.’ And I thought you were crazy but you gave me so much hope and determination.”
He continued, “Years later we toured together with Blink and Foo’s in Australia and I have the best memories of smoking cigarettes in the restroom of flights we were on together and watching your set every night. To say I’ll miss you my friend isn’t enough. Till the next time we talk drums and smoke in the boys room … Rest In Peace.”
