U2 paid tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks recently during one of their gigs in the city last night. The band were originally scheduled to play the day after the attacks but had to cancel the show.
Back in November U2 were scheduled to play in Paris, with one of the shows to be broadcast on HBO. However due to the Paris attacks they were forced to pull out of the shows.
They have since rescheduled two shows in the city at the AccorHotels Arena, one of which was last night. The band paid tribute to the victims of the attacks on the giant screen in the middle of the venue.
Bono spoke to the crowd during the tribute saying “We stand together with the families who lost their loved ones in Paris” adding that “We stand together with families in San Bernardino. We stand together with families in Beirut and Istanbul. We stand together before those with false ideologies of the god they serve.”
