Tonight's MOTÖRHEAD Concert In Paris Rescheduled For January

MOTÖRHEAD has been forced to cancel tonight's show in Paris, France at The Zenith 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. MOTÖRHEAD's crew, trucks and buses are unable to cross the border into France for the gig, which was to take place at the Zenith concert venue. The group intends to reschedule the gig for an unspecified date in January.

"Our hearts go out to all who have suffered in Paris tonight. We are so sorry; it is so utterly horrific," the group wrote in a statement. "Thank you to everyone who has asked about us all. Everyone in the Motörcamp is safe, although as you have probably heard, Paris and, indeed, France, is understandably on lockdown until local authorities can gauge the full extent of what has occurred. We just hope everyone can heal."

Show production company Gerard Drouot Productions added on Facebook: "Following the tragic events that occurred last night in Paris, the Ministry of Culture has taken the decision to close the Zenith Paris - La Villette on Sunday, November 15. The MOTÖRHEAD concert scheduled... is therefore postponed to a later date, probably on 21 January. We will confirm this report shortly."
