#ParisAttacks Paris attacks: U2, Foo Fighters, Deftones and Coldplay cancel or postpone gigs
The assault on one of the leading concert halls in Paris has sent shock waves through the music world, with top-selling artists including U2 and Foo Fighters calling off shows.

The assault on one of the leading concert halls in Paris has sent shock waves through the music world, with top-selling artists including U2 and Foo Fighters calling off shows.
“Shocked, sad and angry. We are all Parisian today,” tweeted Peter Gabriel, one of many prominent musicians who took to social media after Friday’s night co-ordinated attacks in the French capital.
More than 80 people were killed inside the Bataclan concert hall as gunmen opened fire during a performance by the California rock band Eagles of Death Metal, an attack for which the Islamic State group took responsibility.
France’s Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin laid a bouquet of flowers Saturday in front of the Bataclan, a historic venue which is striking for its 19th-century Chinoiserie architecture.
A short while earlier, an anonymous man brought a mobile keyboard near the entrance and played songs including John Lennon’s pacifist anthem Imagine under the eye of a pack of photographers.
The music industry was directly touched by the tragedy, with at least three employees of Universal Music France, part of the largest global label group, among the dead.
“The Universal Music family is in mourning,” tweeted Pascal Negre, president of Universal Music France, as he identified the dead by the first names Thomas, Marie and Manu.
“This is crazy. It’s normally a pleasant place where people come to relax and then it was hell,” said the television and radio presenter Pierre Janaszak.
Janaszak said he survived by hiding in the rest rooms as the assailants took hostages and was freed in the police counter-assault.
Members of Eagles of Death Metal, a bluesy garage rock band known for lascivious lyrics but rarely politics, were unhurt and were set to return to the United States, although a crew member originally from England was killed, people close to the group said.
The Deftones, another California band who were in the audience ahead of their own shows at the Bataclan, which have since been cancelled, were also safe and leaving Paris.
The Bataclan, which has a capacity of 1500, is one of the most prominent Paris venues for successful but eclectic bands.
The night before the assault, the acclaimed electronic artist St Germain performed with an ensemble of Malian musicians.
“We are devastated. Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones,” the Bataclan’s owners, Jules Frutos and Olivier Poubelle, said in a statement. “We are also thinking about our exemplary staff but also about the audience and artists present last night in our venue.”
France imposed a state of emergency after the attack and the city Saturday closed all cultural venues.
U2 had already cancelled a concert Saturday at the 20,000-seat Bercy arena, the biggest covered concert hall in Paris, despite weeks of promotion for a live television broadcast on HBO. They said they were “fully resolved to go ahead with this show at an appropriate time.”
The Irish rockers led by Bono later also appeared at the Bataclan to pay their respects. U2, whose last concert tour was the highest-grossing in musical history and are winding down their latest global trek, also called off a second date at Bercy on Sunday.
Foo Fighters — whose frontman Dave Grohl has collaborated with Eagles of Death Metal — separately announced that the band was cutting short its world tour.
“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,” the band said in a statement.
Foo Fighters had been due to play at Bercy, also known as AccorHotels Arena, the day after U2 and also had shows left in Turin, Lyon and Barcelona.
But in contrast, another veteran rock band, Motorhead, will go ahead Sunday with a show.
The high-decibel heavy metal group led by Lemmy will play the Zenith, the second-largest indoor venue in Paris at 6000 capacity.
Elsewhere, Coldplay postponed a concert in Los Angeles on Saturday that was due to be live on streaming service Tidal.
The English rock act, which is promoting an upcoming album, said it made the decision out of respect after the “terrible events in Paris” but would still play a set of old material offline for fans with tickets.

Too small. Too slow. Too pedestrian. Two & Three Touchdowns..
Russell Wilson finds Doug Baldwin for an 80-yard TD to top things off.
Most Seahawks were probably just hoping for a first down on this play, but then Doug Baldwin decided to go bananas and take this thing 80 yards to the house. Not a bad way to end a game.
Here’s Ben Roethlisberger Wrongly Assuming He ‘Aced’ The Concussion Test
Ben Roethlisberger took a vicious hit to the head on Sunday against the Seahawks. The screencap above gives you an idea of just how bad it was. Roethlisberger said he had blurry vision throughout the rest of the game, and said he felt like he was “looking through water.” Thankfully for Roethlisberger (and his brain), the symptoms subsided some time later.
“I have played through many injuries, but the brain is not an injury you want to play with.”
Wise words from Big Ben.
On Tuesday, Roethlisberger began telling people he was diagnosed with a traumatic ocular migraine. He also told a Pittsburgh radio station that he performed well in the NFL’s concussion test. Passed with flying colors, apparently.
“I did go into the protocol, took the test today and, um, unlike when I was in school, I think I aced this one. So, I should be okay.”
And none of that is true. Roethlisberger did not ace the test, he didn’t even pass. He was diagnosed with a concussion after a medical expert (presumably) reviewed the results. He is questionable for Sunday’s game, but feels like he will be good to go.
For what it’s worth (and it’s not much), this is Roethlisberger’s first concussion in seven years. Replace the word concussion with “brain injury” here and that still doesn’t sound very good.
In somewhat related news, Concussion starring Will Smith will be in theaters December 25.
The Steelers tried a bit of trickery on an apparent field goal attempt against the Seahawks. The Seahawks did not buy it for a second, and easily intercepted a pass from backup QB Landry Jones:
The Steelers came out in a field goal formation on fourth-and-2 at the opposing 27-yard line. Except instead of their regular holder, punter Jordan Berry, it's backup QB, Landry Jones. They audible into a formation that looks kind of like a punt, with Jones over 10 yards deep and kicker Chris Boswell set up as a personal protector.
The star tight end suffered a torn patella tendon in Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.
Jimmy Graham hauls in a leaping, juggling catch despite the efforts of two defenders
The Steelers had great coverage on Jimmy Graham with two players flanking the big tight end and a third coming to clean up the play. That still wasn't good enough as Graham went up and over the defense then juggled and corralled the ball for an incredible 36-yard grab.
Watching it the first time it seems like there is no way Graham could have hauled that it. But he absolutely did, managing to get his hand under the ball before hitting the ground. Three juggles and securing the ball all with two defenders all over him. Wow.
SF 13 - 29 SEA
Will Ferrell and Randy Johnson hung out at the@Seahawksgame on Sunday:
Brett Favre suited up for the Falcons, Jets and Vikings during his 20-year NFL career, but he spent the bulk of his time in the league as the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. After a less-than-amicable departure, things between the Gunslinger and the Green Bay fans and organization weren't ideal. Thursday, however, the hatchet was buried with Favre being given the key to the city and having his name unveiled on the facade at Lambeau Field.
Favre's resume ranks up there with the best NFL quarterbacks of all time. Perhaps the most impressive and maybe untouchable record he owns is his streak of 297 consecutive regular season starts. The next closest to Favre among active players is Eli Manning with 177 consecutive starts, who would only need to play SEVEN-AND-A-HALF MORE SEASONS WORTH OF GAMES to equal Favre. He also brought the Packers one of the four Super Bowl championships in team history, winning Super Bowl XXXI at the end of the 1996-97 season.
Favre became the first Packer ever to be inducted into the team Hall of Fame and have his number retired at the same time. Perhaps the biggest applause of the night was reserved for another Packers legend. Bart Starr came out to show support for a fellow Green Bay legend, even while battling serious health issues that made his presence doubtful for a while.
An awesome ceremony for an unquestionably great quarterback.
Did Eddie Lacy score this touchdown, or did he pull a DeSean Jackson?
Eddie Lacy scored a 25-yard receiving touchdown for the Packers against the Bears. But if we peek at the end of his run... did he accidentally let go of the ball an instant before crossing the goal line?
Lacy was obviously well on his way to scoring, but from time to time, we see players accidentally cost themselves a touchdown by flipping the ball in celebration a second too soon. DeSean Jackson is the famous one, but Utah's Kaelin Clay (who, in a funny coincidence, went to Jackson's high school and initially committed to Cal to be like Jackson) also did it.
Lacy's touchdown is about as close as you can get. Here's the last frame we have with him holding the ball:
And here's the first frame we have of him not holding the ball:
I... I really can't tell! Remember, only the tip of the ball needs to break the plane of the end zone, so if I had to pick, I'd say it crosses. It definitely wasn't enough to overturn. But, guys, just hold onto the ball a second longer. It can only help.
Since its debut in 1975, people have been speculating about the design influence for the Seattle Seahawks team logo, but until recently, a specific object that most likely inspired the designers had not been identified.
Copyright: Burke Museum of Natural History & Culture, Seattle, WA.
At the time of the 1975 logo design, the central and northern Northwest Coast art (traditional to the Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian and Kwakwaka’wakw tribes of Alaska and northern British Columbia) were the most readily recognized design styles from the Pacific Northwest Coast.
The reasons for this are multi-faceted going back to the late 19th century popularity of the totem poles, seen by tourists on steam ship trips traveling to Alaska and British Columbia. One of thesepoles was appropriated (literally stolen) and used as a symbol of Seattle starting in 1899, gaining even more popularity during the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition of 1909. (1)
Burke Museum Curator EmeritusBill Holm’s pivotal 1965 book, Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of Form (2), provided us with the vocabulary now used to describe this northern art style, further bringing this northern design system into public awareness.
These northern Northwest Coast art forms eclipsed the more subtle and private expressions of art made by the local Coast Salish tribes throughout western Washington, until local Coast Salish artists such as William Shelton and Joseph Hillaire began carving Salish-style “Story Poles” and displaying them publicly throughout the region. (3)
The original Seahawks logo designers referenced books about Northwest Coast art for the design inspiration:
(Seahawks general manager) Thompson said the NFL firm did refer to some books on Northwest Indian culture. 'Our intent was to follow the Northwest Indian culture, but there was no condition placed on them (NFL) in designing.'(4)
I recently asked Bill Holm if the NFL designers had ever contacted him, and he said no, they never did, but that he knew they had relied on published illustrations of the art.
Reaching to his bookshelf, he pulled Robert Bruce Inverarity’s 1950 book, Art of the Northwest Coast Indians (5), off the shelf, and flipping through the illustrations he found the most likely source for the Seahawks logo: a Kwakwaka’wakw transformation mask depicting an eagle (in its closed form) with a human face inside (revealed when the mask opens when danced).

The sweep of the bold painted line around the front of the eyesocket and back of the mouth, the open-ended eyelid lines, and the line of the mouth and beak all match nicely with the original Seattle Seahawks logo. The origin of this mask is half-way between Alaska and Seattle on the northeast side of Vancouver Island.
In 1975, reacting to the first Seahawks logo, artist Marvin Oliver (Quinault/Isleta) who had studied with Bill Holm, offered a redesigned logo thathe felt adhered more closelyto the northern Northwest Coast “formline” design principles of northern design explained in Holm's book. (6)
Subsequent NFL redesigns of the logo have further streamlined the design, removing the eyelid lines, and giving the bird a more aggressive look.
ContemporaryCoast Salishartist Shaun Peterson recently posted a video featuring his own rendition of the Seahawks logo using Coast Salish design elements.
Since Seattle is on the traditional lands of the Coast Salish, and is named for a prominent Duwamish/Suquamish (Coast Salish) leader, Chief Sealth, it might have been more appropriate for the NFL to have been inspired by a Coast Salish design.
Still, it's fascinating to learn of this Kwakwaka’wakw mask that could have inspired the original Seattle Seahawks logo, and I look forward to seeing what concepts other First Nations artists create in the future.
A Washington-based artist has made a Seahawks-inspired bird mask that is as impressively realistic as it is nightmare inducing.
The bird costume was built by DeviantArt.com user Crystumes as a gift for a Seahawks-loving friend and includes a beak with a working jaw, and plumage in the team’s signature blue and neon green colors.
