Twenty One Pilots have cancelled the remaning dates of their European tour after the Paris attacks that left 129 people dead, including many at the Bataclan concert hall, which was hosting an Eagles Of Death Metal show at the time.

In a message to fans, Tyler Joseph [right], said: “Not only were lives taken by senseless acts of violence, but the tragic event hit close.

“We had just been there the day before; me, Josh, our crew, my wife, playing a concert. I keep thinking, ‘It could have been our show. It could have been our lighting and sound guy. It could have been our pit of fans.’

“Could I ever continue after that?”

The band have cancelled shows in Hamburg, Cologne and Munich as a result but will return to the UK and Europe in February.
