The Paris Attacks Affected Musicians Across The Globe — Here’s How

Coldplay and the Foo Fighters have canceled plans because of the attacks.

On Friday, three teams of coordinated, determined terrorists gripped Paris in absolute chaos for three hours, targeting a soccer match, a busy neighborhood in the middle of the city and a music venue where American band Eagles Of Death Metal were performing. At least 129 people were killed, The New York Times reports, most of them at the Bataclan theater, where the concert took place.

One of them was British citizen Nick Alexander, a merch seller for the band. Another was Guillaume B. Decherf, a music journalist at French magazine Les Inrocks who had recently written about the band. No members of Eagles Of Death Metal themselves were harmed.

But the attacks began a rippling effect that spread to other musicians around the globe -- bands with planned Paris tour dates lined up, artists with live-stream broadcasts on the docket and groups who narrowly escaped the violence themselves.
