The Foo Fighters have canceled their remaining tour dates in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed more than 120 people on Friday.

“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,” the band wrote in a statement on Facebook.

At least 127 people are dead in the wake of six attacks on the French capital. In one of those attacks, gunmen took hostages and opened fire on a crowd at the Bataclan concert hall, where the band Eagles of Death Metal were playing. The band members are reportedly safe, according to the Los Angeles Times. U2 also canceled its Saturday night concert in Paris that was set to be broadcast as an HBO special later that day.

“In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now,” Foo Fighters’ statement continued. “There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.”

The remaining tour dates were, via SPIN:

November 14 – Turin, Italy @ Pala Alpitour
November 16 – Paris, France @ Bercy Arena
November 17 – Lyon, France @ Halle Tony Garnier
November 19 – Barcelona, Spain @ Palau Sant Jordi
