More fallout from yesterday’s horrible terrorist attack on Paris yesterday: First, Foo Fighters has canceled the remainder of their European tour, including their Paris date on November 16. Now, more musicians have been forced to cancel concerts scheduled in Paris in the coming days.

Irish rock act U2 announced their two-night stand in Paris, scheduled for November 14 and 15, has been postponed indefinitely. HBO was slated to broadcast the November 14 concert live and says the event will be rescheduled.

Canadian pop-punk band Simple Plan has also canceled their Paris concert scheduled for Monday, November 16. “The safety and well-being of our fans are always our absolute priority,” the band said in a statement. “We have informed our friends at Warner Music France of our desire to come back as soon as possible to Paris, when the time is right.”

Californian alt-metal quintet Deftones, originally scheduled for a three-night stand at Le Bataclan in Paris from November 14-16, has canceled all three shows. French news outlet AFP is reporting that the band has canceled their entire European tour, but the band has yet to comment publicly on that.

AFP is also reporting that Eagles Of Death Metal, whose concert was taken over by terrorists last night, has also canceled the remainder of their European tour, originally slated to run into mid-December. Their merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, was one of many gunned down inside Le Bataclan last night.
