Deftones have cancelled their European and UK tour following the attacks in Paris that saw over 100 people killed. The pulled shows include yesterday’s planned visit to the Bataclan, one of the locations targeted on Friday (13th November).
They’ll also no longer play Columbiahalle in Berlin, Palladium in Cologne, and Wembley Arena in London.
“Much has been said, as well as seen, on every media outlet about the events in Paris,” the band say in a statement. “Some of us were in attendance at the Le Bataclan, and the rest of our family, just blocks away on this night. We have been to Paris many, many times, and we’ve had some of the most amazing shows in this tremendously electric city.
“With this being said, and with our deepest condolences, love and respect to everyone affected, and to all of us who share this planet, we must return home to our loved ones. We will return when appropriate.
“For ticket holders, we will have more information soon, so please hang tight. Until then, please never forget the power of gathering, and one of the most unbelievable feelings of all: that P.M.A.”
Deftones’ new album will be released early next year.
