Foo Fighters Cancel Remaining Tour Dates Following Paris Attacks
The band issued a statement on Saturday
Update 3: U2 have rescheduled their Paris concerts for December 6 and 7. “So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable,” said Bono, in a statement. “For one night, the killers took lives, took music, took peace of mind – but they couldn’t steal the spirit of that city. It’s a spirit our band knows well and will try to serve when we return for the postponed shows on December 6th and 7th. We’re going to put on our best for Paris.”
Update 2: Coldplay have also postponed a TIDAL live stream of their Los Angeles concert, which was set to take place on Friday night. They have also made an official statement on their website, which can be read below.
Tonight’s live stream for TIDAL & KROQ has been postponed out of respect for the terrible events in Paris.
All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show, with details to follow soon. For those of you already down at the venue and those on your way, we’ll play a short set of old material so that your journey isn’t wasted
We send our love and prayers to the people of Paris.
