U2 pays homage to Paris attack victims

Rock band U2 visited the the site of Bataclan concert hall, where at least 80 people were killed by gunmen, to pay homage to the victims of the Paris attack.

The Irish group, whose concert was scheduled to happen on over the weekend but was called off in the wake of the horrific attacks, paid their respects at a makeshift memorial made of flowers and candles, reported People magazine.

An Instagram post showed a white sheet with the band’s autographs written on it in black ink. The sheet also contained messages of hope and despair like, “How can a man with so many friends feel so alone?” and “Love is bigger than anything in its way.”

Calling the attacks “devastating” the band’s frontman Bono said it is a “first direct hit on music”.
