Sum 41 Cancel Show After Explosive Device Detonated Outside Venue

Sum 41 have also canceled their Jan. 18 show at Les Etoiles in Paris, following the incident of an explosive device being detonated outside the Zenith venue door during load in Jan. 17.

In a statement from the band, they confirm there were no injuries, but they have canceled the show to ensure the safety of everyone.

“Band, crew, the fans in line are all safe, and there were no injuries,” the statement reads. “Due to the intimate nature of our ‘Personal Space’ performances, we are unable to guarantee the safety of the fans in attendance. We are deeply saddened to announce that tonight’s show has been canceled.”

The band says they are working on scheduling a makeup show and there will be more information to follow. They also instruct fans who had tickets to the event to contact their local Live Nation ticket outlet for refunds.

“We are currently discussing our options to schedule a make up show as soon as possible,” the band writes. “Please stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks.”
