Prince has postponed his upcoming solo tour of Europe and the UK until further notice. This announcement comes as a result of last Friday’s tragic events in Paris.
In a post to his personal Twitter page, Prince said: “Due to the tragic events in Paris, the tour promoter has decided to postpone the upcoming European tour until further notice”. If or when these events will resume at a later date remains to be seen, however Prince isn’t the only artist to cancel shows following the Paris attacks.
The likes of Deftones, Foo Fighters and Twenty One Pilots have all cancelled the remaining dates of their respective European tours, following horrific attacks in Paris which saw over 140 people killed by Islamic State terrorists. The worst affected location was Paris’ Bataclan Theatre, where Eagles of Death Metal were playing. The band have since returned home to the US and will not appear at Speedfest in Eindhoven this weekend.
