Foo Fighters have put a nix to their European tour due to the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris

As a result of the deadly attacks in Paris on Friday night (Nov. 13), Foo Fighters have canceled the remaining dates of their European tour. The group was slated to perform in Paris on Monday (Nov. 16).

Foo Fighters issued a statement about the cancelation on Facebook, stating, “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.”

They added, “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 were scheduled to perform four more concerts in Europe, including gigs in Paris, as well as Lyon, France, and two stops in Italy and Spain.

In other news, the Eagles of Death Metal, who were playing the Bataclan concert hall where the terrorist attacks occurred, are safe. Drummer Julian Dorio’s drummer told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Julian contacted him and told him the band “hit the floor” when they saw the gunman and immediately exited out a backstage door.
