Foo Fighters Cancel Tour In Wake Of Paris Massacre

In the wake of Friday’s truly horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, Foo Fighters have decided to cancel the remaining dates in their European tour. “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,” the band said in a statement. “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 played a show in Italy last night, and they were scheduled to perform at Paris’s Bercy Arena on Monday, 11/16. U2 also canceled a pair of shows at the Bercy Arena this weekend.
