In the wake of the Paris attacks, Foo Fighters have just announced the cancellation of their remaining European tour dates, which included a stop in Paris on November 16th.
In a statement, the band said the following:
“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.”
Other shows cancelled include stops in Turin, Italy (November 14th); Lyon, France (November 17th) and Barcelona, Spain (November 19th.)
