Lamb Of God Star Discusses Fall Out Of Paris Terrorist Attacks
After IS extremists killed 130 people in the French capital - 89 of them at an Eagles Of Death Metal show - on November 13, Lamb Of God were among the acts to abandon their planned tour and head home.
Now the drummer has given more detail on the decision, saying that security staff at the venue in Tilburg, the Netherlands, where LOG were due to play on November 18, had spotted two men acting suspiciously outside.
Adler tells Elliot In The Morning: "We already knew about the Paris attack, but when we got to Tilburg, we realized that the same night we had played in Germany, about 200 miles away, was the planned attack of a stadium there. There was an ambulance full of explosives that they found.
"So we were glad that nothing happened there. And so we got to Tilburg. And there was a specific security concern at the venue, where the venue security found two grown men outside taking pictures for hours of the facility and where the buses were parked and where the trucks were parked.
"And as they approached them to ask what was going on, the two guys ran as fast as they could, jumped on their bikes and took off. So security came to us, explained that situation and said, 'We don't have any credible evidence, and we're gonna beef up security for the show, but you guys, we wanna make sure that you know what's going on.'"
