Foo Fighters Cancel Remaining European Tour Dates Following Paris Attacks
Foo Fighters have canceled the remaining dates in their European tour following the attacks in Paris on Friday, Nov. 13.
There were four more stops in Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways tour. The band was scheduled to play a concert in Turin, Italy, tonight, followed by shows in Paris, Lyon and Barcelona. You can see the list of affected dates at the bottom of the page.
Foo Fighters provided the following statement to their Facebook:
It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour. In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can't continue right now. There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.
Foo Fighters are the latest in a series of bands, including U2 and Coldplay, to cancel scheduled shows in the wake of the tragic events in Paris on Friday. Coordinated attacks across the city took the lives of a reported 127 people, including 87 who were attending an Eagles of Death Metal show at Le Bataclan when four gunmen began shooting during the band's set.
