Foo Fighters announced they were cancelling the remainder of their European tour following the overnight terrorist attacks in Paris. The rock band took to Facebook Saturday to write that they were saddened to hear about the tragedy and would not be performing in the city Monday night as previously scheduled.
"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 wrote. "In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now."
The statement continued, "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.”
According to Us Weekly, the Foo Fighters was scheduled to perform in Italy on Saturday and in Paris on Monday, Nov. 16.
The band's canceled performance comes just hours after U2 also released a statement saying it was postponing their concerts in Paris this weekend. U2 was slated to perform at the Bercy Arena for an HBO special titled "Innocence + Experience Live in Paris." The band wrote on its website that the show would be rescheduled for a later date.
"We watched in disbelief and shock at the unfolding events in Paris and our hearts go out to all of the victims and their families across the city tonight,” U2's statement read. “We are devastated at the loss of life at the Eagles of Death Metal concert and our thoughts and prayers are with the band and their fans. And we hope and pray that all of our fans in Paris are safe.”
Earlier Saturday Bono opened up about him and his band members being in Paris at the time of the attack, telling Irish DJ Dave Fanning in a radio interview that it was "unsettling."
“If you think about it, the majority of victims last night are music fans," he said. "This is the first direct hit on music that we’ve had in this so-called War On Terror or whatever it’s called. It’s very upsetting. These are our people. This could be me at a show… The coldblooded aspect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that’s what I can’t get out of my head.”
