Brantley Gilbert Postpones European Tour Dates Following Paris Attacks
Brantley Gilbert has canceled several of his upcoming tour dates in Europe out of respect of the victims in the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. The country singer/songwriter says that he will return, though rescheduled dates have not been announced yet.
“Out of respect for the lives lost in yesterday’s terrorist attacks, we have decided to postpone the rest of our European dates. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France at this tragic time. WE WILL BE BACK,” he posted in a Facebook update on Nov. 14.
The tour dates that have been postponed include concerts in Glasgow, Scotland (Nov. 17), Manchester, England (Nov. 18), Birmingham, England (Nov. 19) and London, England (Nov. 20). Gilbert’s show in Stuttgart, Germany -- which was scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 -- was also called off.
Besides Gilbert, bands including Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Motorhead, Simple Plan and U2 are among those who have postponed or canceled events after the tragedy in Paris. In the city of Paris, all concert venues, movie theaters and other public spaces were shut down.
Gilbert’s tour is slated to resume on Jan. 28 in Saginaw, Mich.
