Sum 41 show in Paris cancelled after device detonation.

Sum 41 was forced to cancel a show tonight in Paris after a device exploded outside the venue doors.

There are no injuries reported by Alternative Press, who says the explosive device went off outside the main entrance of Les Etoiles while the band was doing a load-in for their second of two shows in the city.  Fans are reporting the device to be “firecrackers,” but there was no official confirmation of that.

It is unknown if the incident is related to the protests happening in France over government plans to overhaul the pension system, protests that blocked one of the city’s most famous landmarks on Friday — The Lourve museum.  — [eric]
