The name of the band is the Allah-Las. It is not hard to imagine that the savages would want to perpetrate another bloodbath in order to show their dislike for this name, as the war that only one side is fighting effectively continues in Europe.
“Dutch TERROR: Rock concert evacuated as bus loaded with GAS BOTTLES found near venue,” by Will Kirby, Express, August 23, 2017:
A ROCK concert by US band Allah Las has been cancelled and the venue evacuated amid concerns over a terror threat after police discovered a bus filled with gas bottles nearby.
Police officers wearing bulletproof vests descended on the Maassilo venue in Rotterdam while an anti-terror unit was also on-site, according to local media.
The gig was cancelled following a tip-off from Spanish police, and the mayor of Rotterdam has now confirmed a small van with Spanish number plates and “gas bottles” was found near the venue.
Dutch police officers stopped the driver of the van in Rotterdam and have taken him into custody.
Rotterdam mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb told the news conference it wasn’t clear whether the threat and the van were connected.
A tweet by staff at the Maassilo venue claims authorities ordered the cancellation of tonight’s gig.
The news comes just days after a van was driven into pedestrians on Barcelona’s La Rambla, one of the city’s top tourist hotspots.
The horrific attack left 14 people dead and more than 130 injured in one of the worst atrocities ever seen in Spain.
It is unknown whether there are any links between the incident in Rotterdam and last week’s attacks in Spain.
Earlier today, Dutch media claimed that police received a tip-off that a terror attack was being planned for the Allah-Las’ concert and canceled the show as a precaution.
The Maassilo is an exhibition venue located in central Rotterdam, with capacity for 1,000 people.
The venue was evacuated before the concert was due to start, and images on social media show a number of concertgoers stood around outside while officers in bulletproof vests patrol the area.
Allah Las are a US rock band from Los Angeles, California, currently on a European tour.
The band claim they chose to use Allah – Arabic for god – because they wanted something that sounded “holy”.
However, they revealed last year that they have had complaints about their name from across the world, with some people offended by their moniker.
Lead singer Miles Michaud said: “We get emails from Muslims, here in the US and around the world, saying they’re offended, but that absolutely wasn’t our intention.
“We email back and explain why we chose the name and mainly they understand.”…
