Dave Grohl’s band announced their gig in Barcelona was one of four being abandoned following the outrage.

A statement on the band’s Facebook page said: “In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now.

“There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks.”
