Famous bands Foo Fighters, Motorhead, Coldplay and U2 have decided to cancel their tours to pay respect to the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. The massive incident has taken the lives of 129 innocent people.

In a statement, Foo Fighters vocalist Dave Grohl announced on Facebook that the remaining dates of their Sonic Highways World tour were cancelled. The band had four dates left on their tour, including a performance in Paris.

“It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour. In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can't continue right now. There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks,” he said.

Grohl continued, “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.”

A series of terror attacks in Paris on Friday left the nation in mourning and the world in shock. CNN reported that ISIS has claimed responsibility of the massacre and French authorities vowed revenge.

Coldplay held a moment of silence for the victims of the tragedy during their Friday night concert in Los Angeles. The band had a short acoustic set, including a cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” and promised its fans the full show in one week.
