French Authorities Order Motorhead to Postpone Paris Show
Motorhead’s Sunday night show in Paris was postponed on the weekend after the shut-down was ordered by the French authorities. Initially, after the terrorist attacks on Friday night at the Eagles of Death Metal show, Motorhead had planned to go ahead with their own show in Paris that was scheduled to be held at The Zenith. However, it was strongly advised by the police that it wasn’t a good idea to go ahead with the performance.
In a statement provided by Motorhead, they offered their condolences and apologies to the public and announced that their gig in Paris would be postponed until January. They said that they were trying to choose a suitable date and would provide details soon.
On Saturday, a statement was issued in which Motorhead express their horror at the terrorist attacks and thanked everyone who had asked about their safety. They assured the public that everyone at Motorcamp was doing well. They added that Paris was in a lockdown until the authorities could figure out what happened and they would share any further news.
They haven’t officially announced a return data for the show in January. Their next performance is on November 17th, 2015 in Dusseldorf, Germany. On Saturday night, U2 also had a show in Paris, which they cancelled and the Foo Fighters also cancelled all their remaining shows of the European tour.
