The world was stunned Friday (Nov. 13) by the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and celebrities have been quick to react with messages of prayers and peace. Bono said in a radio interview after U2’s Paris concert was canceled in the wake of the attacks that he “can’t wait” until U2 can reschedule the performance.
“These people will not set our agenda. They will not organize our lives for us,” says the singer.
Coldplay is another band that canceled a concert in the wake of the attacks.The band was supposed to have a live streaming show on TIDAL and KROQ Saturday that they “postponed out of respect for the terrible events in Paris.”
However, it happened so last minute that some fans were already at the concert. “For those of you already down at the venue and those on your way, we’ll play a short set of old material so that your journey isn’t wasted,” the band writes on its website. “All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show, with details to follow soon … we send our love and prayers to the people of Paris.”
In addition to original songs, Coldplay performed a beautiful rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
