Lamb of God, Children of Bodom cancel show in Tilburg due to security issues

Posted by on November 18, 2015

The wave of show cancellations in Europe following last Friday’s atrocious terrorist attacks in Paris, isn’t stopping just yet, as the latest bands to err on the side of caution are Lamb of God and Children of Bodom, who are currently doing a run throughout the old continent.

The package was scheduled to perform tonight (18) in Tilburg, The Netherlands, and after the bomb threat that took place in Hannover, Germany, the bands were concerned about the security of the venue and decided to cancel the scheduled show. The promoters declared:

“Because of the attacks on Paris last Friday that also took place in a music venue, a lot of stress is caused for bands playing in Europe. Combined with the terrorist threat that took place in Hannover, Germany last night, the bands are feeling to big a pressure to give the performance the audience is used from them and have decided to cancel their shows tonight. As of now, it is unknown if the bands will return for a replacement show later on.”

This is one of the many cancellations that took place after the attack at Le Bataclan Theatre in Paris. Foo Fighers, Deftones and Motorhead are some of the many bands concerned about the delicate situation in Europe right now. As of right now, there’s no word on the fate of the rest of the tour.

While this may be a bummer for some of the fans, the safety of the bands and attendees should always be priority.
