Amsterdam show falls foul of bomb threats

The Killers‘ scheduled show at the Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall last night (March 12) was postponed following a terrorist threat in the Dutch city.

On Wednesday (March 11) Amsterdam police received a phone call tip-off warning that an explosive attack was set to take place, giving details of those suspected of plotting the attack, prompting the gig cancellation.

Six men and a woman were later arrested on charges of preparing an attack, reports Pollstar.com.

Amsterdam mayor Job Cohen said: “It wasn’t a regular bomb warning, but a warning of a planned action aimed at creating casualties in shops.”

The show has been rescheduled for May 29. Original tickets remain valid.
