PICS: U2 lay wreaths at shrine near the scene of the Paris attacks
"It could have been any of us"...
U2 were due to play two sold-out concerts in Paris tonight and tomorrow but they were forced to cancel the gigs after the events in Paris last night.
The band visited the makeshift shrine which has been set up near the Bataclan Theatre, the place where 87 people were killed last night in a spate of terror attacks.
Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen joined with hundreds of people to pay their respects to the dead in the French capital as they laid wreaths, one of which said, "Love to the fans of music, love to the fans of EODM'.
Eagles of Death Metal were playing in the theatre last night when the atrocities happened...
“Our first thoughts at this point are with the Eagles of Death Metal fans,” Bono told the Dave Fanning Show on 2FM this morning.
“When you think about it, the majority of victims from last night’s attacks were music fans.
“So this really is the first direct hit on music we’ve had on this so called war on terror.
“We know that they don’t like music… and this and the cold blooded aspect of last night attacks are what are really upsetting because it means it could have been any of us.
