Marilyn Manson cancels Paris concert

Marilyn Manson is the latest musician to cancel a planned show in Paris following the terrorist attacks in the French capital on Friday (13Nov15).

The Beautiful People rocker was slated to bring his Hell Not Hallelujah Tour to the Le Zenith venue on Monday (16Nov15), but he decided to axe the gig in the aftermath of the horrific events.

"Marilyn Manson's show scheduled for Nov 16 @ Le Zenith in Paris has been canceled. Marilyn Manson will resume the tour in Brussels on Nov 18," a post on his official Twitter account reads.

Canadian rockers Simple Plan were slated to perform at a private showcase in Paris on Monday, but they have also canceled that appearance.

Manson and Simple Plan join U2, Foo Fighters, the Deftones, Brantley Gilbert, Five Finger Death Punch and Motorhead, who have all scrapped concerts in Paris following the attacks.

More than 130 people were killed during the attacks in Paris, including 80 concertgoers at an Eagles of Death Metal gig at the Bataclan theater.
