Lamb Of God have apparently decided to drop off their tour with Children Of Bodum, and Sylosis, due security concerns related to the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France, which resulted in the death of 129 people, including over 80 at Eagles Of Death Metal‘s concert at the Bataclan. Despite this, Children Of Bodom, and Sylosis will finish the trek.
Lamb Of God issued the following statement:
“Due to concerns brought to our attention by the venue security team yesterday in Tilburg – and continued general concerns across Europe – we have decided against putting our fans, our crew and ourselves in this position night after night and will be canceling the remainder of our performances in Europe. This is a decision we are making on behalf of the fans, our crew, and our band, as well as the well-being of everyone’s family, friends and loved ones at home. Stay safe, and we will see you very soon”
Children Of Bodom also commented on the situation:
Lamb of God has chosen to leave the European tour due to security concerns in Europe. Our team has been working very hard to make all of the remaining shows happen. WE WANT TO, AND HAVE DECIDED TO, CONTINUE ON THE ROAD AND PLAY THE REST OF THE TOUR. Sylosis also will be joining us on their scheduled appearances. Here is what we know so far.
Unfortunately the promoter has decided to move forward and cancel tonight’s show in Oberhausen, Germany, and the additional shows in Germany.
