With the world still reeling from yesterday’s massive terrorist attack in Paris, claiming the lives of more than 130 at present date, arena rock act Foo Fighters has made the decision to cancel the remainder of their European tour, which was to include a stop in Paris on November 16 among other dates. The band comments:

“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.”
