Nine Inch Nails will replace Foo Fighters at Boston Calling and Welcome to Rockville. They'll headline May 27 at Boston Calling, which also features The Strokes and Metallica on the other days. On May 22, they'll join fellow headliners KISS, Korn and Guns N' Roses on the Welcome to Rockville bill.

The Foos were poised to play a handful of festivals this year, but after the sudden and unexpected death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins, the band cancelled all remaining tour dates.

"It is with great sadness that the Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins," the emotional statement reads. "We're sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won't be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let's take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we've made together."
