Rock band Filter has canceled their concert in Sweden tonight, after allegedly receiving death threats days after the murder of Christina Grimmie.

Death threats to individual band-members led Filter to call off the show just hours before taking the stage in Goteborg. A representative from the group told TMZ the threats were sent electronically and mentioned band members by name, as well as the targeted venue.

The threats themselves were not the only things taken into consideration. The death of Christina Grimmie this past weekend outside a concert venue in Orlando was also a factor in Filter’s decision.

The band is also scheduled to perform in Stockholm; as of now that show is still on.
