"I need to take this moment to acknowledge the tragedy. The tragic killings, assassinations and the senseless ending of precious life that occurred last night in Paris."

"We watched in disbelief and shock at the unfolding events in Paris and our hearts go out to all the victims and their families across the city tonight," U2 said in a statement on Friday.

“We are devastated at the loss of life at the Eagles of Death Metal concert and our thoughts and prayers are with the band and their fans. And we hope and pray that all of our fans in Paris are safe.”
The band has cancelled two sold-out concerts in Paris, including one to be broadcast live Saturday. Broadcaster HBO had planned to screen the concert live and had been promoting it extensively, including with promo posters in New York. U2 said they were "fully resolved to go ahead with this show at an appropriate time."
