Paris attacks: Marilyn Manson, Motorhead concerts canceled
Marilyn Manson and Motorhead are the latest to cancel their upcoming appearances in Paris following a series of terrorist attacks that struck the city on Friday.
Both were scheduled to perform at The Zenith on consecutive nights. A statement on the venue’s website, as translated by the AFP, says authorities ordered a suspension of concerts in the wake of the attacks. “It was not The Zenith or the artists who wanted to cancel their shows. But we cannot go against the local government decree,” the venue said.
According to Manson’s Twitter account, the artist “will resume the tour in Brussels on Nov. 18,” while Motorhead tweeted they had “to postpone our gig until January. We are rescheduling and will give details ASAP.”
The Zenith stated that concerts will resume at the venue starting on Tuesday with the band Simply Red and additional security precautions.
In the wake of a series of coordinated attacks that left more than 120 people dead, Foo Fighters and U2 were among the musicians who canceled their upcoming performances in the city. Promotional appearances linked to Bridge of Spies and Jane Got a Gun were also canceled, while Madonna dedicated a performance of “Like a Prayer” to the victims and families during her Rebel Heart tour stop in Sweden.
