Brantley Gilbert announced he has postponed his upcoming European tour dates in response to the terrorist attacks that took place in Paris last Friday, November 13th.
Gilbert and his band had just launched the European portion of the ‘Black Out Tour’ in Amsterdam, on Wednesday, November 11th. The tour has already hit the European cities of Hamburg, Germany and Munich, Germany, but the all-American country singer decided to cancel the show which was scheduled for Im Wizemann in Stuttgart, Germany on Saturday, November 14th.
He has also canceled upcoming shows in Scotland and England, after the terrifying events in Paris, where six precisely coordinated attacks took place, including a hostage situation at an Eagles of Death Metal concert. According to the Guardian, 129 people are reported dead and and additional 352 injured, 99 of them in critical condition. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks.
Out of respect for the lives lost in yesterday’s terrorist attacks, we have decided to postpone the rest of our European dates,” the “One Hell of an Amen” singer posted to Facebook on Saturday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France at this tragic time. WE WILL BE BACK.”
No announcement has yet been made yet whether or not the dates will be re-scheduled. Gilbert is scheduled to begin the North American portion of the ‘Black Out Tour’ on January 28, 2016 at the Dow Event Center in Saginaw, Michigan. Tour dates are scheduled to run through the end of April.
