Sum 41 has cancelled its Saturday night show in Paris after an “explosive device” was detonated outside the theatre in which they were scheduled to perform.
The band took to Twitter to alert fans that the show would no longer be taking place.
“During load in for tonight’s performance in Paris, an explosive device was detonated just outside the venue door,” the Canadian rockers wrote.
According to the band, there were “no injuries” and band members, crew and fans at the theatre are “all safe.”
“Due to the intimate nature of our ‘Personal Space’ performances, we are unable to guarantee the safety of the fans in attendance,” the band wrote of the cancelled show.
The band was scheduled to perform at the intimate Les Etoiles club. Information about the origin of the explosion or a possible motive is not yet known.
According to the band, more information will be forthcoming.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time that Sum 41 has been forced to cancel a show due to an explosive device. On July 7, 2005, London was rocked by a series of terrorist attacks, with explosions set off at various parts of the city.
As a result, numerous concerts scheduled for that date were cancelled, including a Sum 41 show scheduled for the London Astoria.
