Eagles of Death Metal, whose Paris concert was invaded by terrorist gunmen last night (Nov. 13), have cancelled the remainder of the European tour, a representative of the promoters told the wire service Agence France-Presse.

While the band survived the attack, dozens of fans attending Eagles of Death Metal’s show at Le Bataclan in Paris were killed. Nick Alexander, who was handling merch for the show, is among those feared dead. Deftones, who had been scheduled to perform at Bataclan tonight (Nov. 14) through Nov. 16, had been at the EODM show but fortunately left right before the gunfire began.

Eagles of Death Metal’s European tour had been scheduled to visit Tourcoing, France tonight and run through Dec. 10 in Portugal.
