  • Police examine the van behind a cordoned-off area

"Due to a potential terror threat at The Maassilo in Rotterdam, the Allah-Las show was cancelled tonight", Allah-Las' representative confirmed to Pitchfork.

"The driver troubled, potentially under the influence" is a technician by profession, and possessed a certificate for the transportation of gas cylinders which is the subject of an investigation on Thursday, said the police of Rotterdam.

The van contained "a couple" of gas canisters and the man's driving had been "conspicuous" he said, declining to comment on Spanish police reports he had been drinking alcohol.

Police arrived at the venue in bulletproof vests and evacuated the area. In a statement the police said a Special Interventions team entered the man's home around 2:00 a.m., arrested him and searched the home carefully.

The show hadn't started when the decision to cancel it was made.

A small bus "with Spanish license plates and gas bottles" was near the venue, says mayor.

Concert organisers told fans that they would receive their money back for the cancelled gigs, while Ahmed Aboutaleb stated that the driver of the van was now being questioned by police after being detained.

It's obviously too early to judge the Joker film, but based on the DCEU's recent history, fans are right to be nervous. While the show has yet to outright label him as " Joker ", Jerome Valeska does have the maniacal laugh mastered.

The Civil Guard shared the information with Dutch authorities Wednesday and was investigating the threat, said the official, who spoke anonymously because the Civil Guard is still probing the threat.

Schoof left the country's threat level unchanged at "substantial", the fourth step of a five-level scale.

Police spokesman Roland Ekkers told The Guardian it is "not likely" that the suspect is a terror threat.

Dutch police stepped up a probe Thursday into a possible terror threat, arresting another man after cancelling a Rotterdam concert by a United States rock group following a tip-off from Spanish authorities.

The Dutch port city's mayor, Ahmed Aboutaleb, said it was not clear if the threat and the bus were connected.

In an interview a year ago, the Allah-lahs told The Guardian newspaper they regularly received messages from Muslims offended by the use of the word Allah in its name. The band chose the name because they wanted something "holy sounding", they told the Guardian past year. He was later freed, but the incident is still under investigation. "We email back and explain, and mainly they understand".
