Paolo PellegrinU2 has decided to cancel the live HBO concert broadcast it had planned for Saturday night in Paris, following attacks in that city that have left over 100 people dead.

A statement on the band’s website reads, “As a result of the ongoing state of emergency across France, the U2 Paris concert scheduled for 14th November will not be going ahead as planned. U2 and Live Nation, along with HBO who were due to live broadcast the Saturday concert, are fully resolved to go ahead with this show at an appropriate time.”

The band itself, whose member are evidently safe and sound, also said in a statement, “We watched in disbelief and shock at the unfolding events in Paris and our hearts go out to all the victims and their families across the city tonight.”

Mentioning the hostages who were slain at a concert by the band Eagles of Death Metal held at a Paris venue, U2 added, “We are devastated at the loss of life at the…concert and our thoughts and prayers are with the band and their fans. And we hope and pray that all of our fans in Paris are safe.”

In the wake of the attacks, French President Hollande has declared a state of emergency across the country.
