Rockers Papa Roach Are Bringing Their European Tour To An End Early Following The Devastating Attacks In Paris.
The band axed two gigs in France after more than 130 died in the carnage on 13 November (15), when terrorists slaughtered revellers at events including a rock gig in the capital city.
Papa Roach have now cancelled the remaining dates on the tour, including an appearance at London's Wembley Arena on Saturday (28Nov15), due to concerns over logistics.
Many of their dates have been joint shows with fellow rockers Five Finger Death Punch, who have vowed to continue without Papa Roach.
"It is again with a heavy heart, that we are announcing the postponement of the remainder of our European tour," a statement from Pap Roach reads. "We pride ourselves for rarely canceling shows, but our crew is an essential part of our organization and because they, unfortunately, could not continue the tour due to their logistical challenges and uncertainties, we could not either.
"We respect them and have had to accept their difficult choice to return home. We shall return next year. We will announce more details on rescheduling as soon as we are able to. #paparoach #weloveyou."
A statement from Five Finger Death Punch adds, "Despite some significant challenges in Europe since the horrible events in Paris recently, we have continued on our tour and remained dedicated to our mission of providing you, the fans, the highest quality show in the safest possible show environment...
"We continue to face additional challenges but remain committed to finishing out the tour as best as we can... Five Finger Death Punch will finish out the remaining European tour dates without Papa Roach... We appreciate everyone's support as we continue to navigate these largely uncharted waters. Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than delivering the best show possible in the safest conditions."
