U2 have postponed their Saturday night concert in Paris in the light of the deadly attacks across the city on Friday night.
Instead, the band said in a statement that it is resolved to go ahead with the concert “at an appropriate time”.
U2 members say they watched in shock and disbelief at the unfolding events and were devastated by the loss of life at the concert held by Eagles of Death Metal, one of several sites in the city that was violently attacked.
“We hope and pray that all of our fans in Paris are safe,” members of U2 said.
HBO had planned to televise the band’s performance.
