Terrorist threat forced The Killers to scrap Amsterdam gig

London, March 14 (ANI): The Killers scrapped a concert in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, owing to terrorist threats.
The rock band were to perform at the Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall on Thursday night.
They, however, cancelled the gig after the Dutch police received an anonymous warning that explosions might take place at the venue.
Six men and a woman have been arrested in connection with the alleged plot, on charges of preparing a terrorist attack.
One of them is believed to be a relative of a suspect in the 2004 Madrid train bombings in Spain, says Pollstar.com.
“It wasn”t a regular bomb warning, but a warning of a planned action aimed at creating casualties in shops,” the Daily Express quoted Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen as saying.
The show has been rescheduled for May 29. (ANI)
