Στο Παρίσι βρίσκονται οι U2 καθώς το δημοφιλές ροκ συγκρότημα είχε για σήμερα το βράδυ προγραμματισμένη συναυλία στην πρωτεύουσα της Γαλλίας.

Νωρίς το πρωί του Σαββάτου ανακοινώθηκε πως η συναυλία ακυρώνεται, μετά τις πολύνεκρες τρομοκρατικές επιθέσεις. Ο Μπόνο και τα υπόλοιπα μέλη του συγκροτήματος όμως δεν εγκατέλειψαν την πόλη του φωτός, αλλά αντίθετα το βράδυ του Σαββάτου επισκέφθηκαν και άφησαν λουλούδια σε έναν από τους τόπους μαρτυρίου για δεκάδες αθώα θύματα.

Στάθηκαν σιωπηλοί μπροστά στο αυτοσχέδιο μνημείο από λουλούδια, κεριά και γράμματα που έχει στηθεί για τους νεκρούς του θεάτρου Μπατακλάν, που παρακολουθούσαν μια συναυλία, και έστειλαν ένα μήνυμα συμπαράστασης, εξίσου δυνατό με τη μουσική τους.
