The wave of terrorist attacks that gripped Paris and claimed more than 120 lives Friday (11/13) has disrupted much in the city of Paris, including Saturday's U2 concert. Out of respect for the victims of Friday's carnage, most of which was unleashed on fans attending a concert by former Queens Of The Stone Age member Josh Homme and his band the Eagles Of Death Metal, and concern for safety, U2 announced the postponement quickly. The post on the U2 web sitre read, 'As a result of the state of emergency across France, the U2 Paris concert scheduled for 14th November and the following one will not be going ahead as planned.' The Saturday (11/14) concert was to be recorded for an HBO special. The band also issued the statement, 'We are fully resolved to go ahead with this show at an appropriate time.'
The Foo Fighters also announced the immediate suspension of the rest of their European tour (story).
