FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Cancels French Concert Following Friday’s Terror Attacks

fivefingerdeathpunchbandFIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has canceled tonight’s show in Strasbourg, France due to the ongoing terror threat in that country after six simultaneous attacks on Friday night left at least 129 people dead, including the massacre at the EAGLES OF DEATH METAL concert, where at least 80 people were killed.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s statement reads as follows: “We followed the tragic events in Paris Friday night with great sadness. We are devastated at the loss of life and have friends and fans who were at the concert. Out of respect for the victims and to observe France’s three national days of mourning, we will be postponing our show in Strasbourg Sunday night, November 15th. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and those affected by the terror attacks in France.”

A British man, Nick Alexander, who was selling merchandise for EAGLES OF DEATH METAL at the Bataclan concert, is among those who died.

The members of EAGLES OF DEATH METAL were uninjured during Friday night’s attack.
