U2's Paris Concert & Live HBO Special Probably Canceled After Terror Attacks

| Filed under: Music MinuteBonoSad SadFrancophiliaViolenceScary!Viral: News

Bono's band was scheduled to play in the city on Saturday and Sunday.

UPDATE 9:40 PM EST: U2 has officially canceled their Saturday show. The band issued a statement, saying:

"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 group continued to give their condolences for all the lives lost during the attacks, adding:

"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. We are devastated at the loss of life at the Eagles of Death Metal 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"

They have not said whether or not HBO will broadcast their Sunday show, or if the concert will even happen at all.


Paris is reeling from multiple terror attacks on Friday.

Various locations in France's capital were targeted, including explosions at the Stade de France stadium during a soccer game, a tragic hostage situation at Le Bataclan concert hall where American band Eagles of Death Metal was playing, as well as several shootings.

Sadly, over 100 people have been killed.

In the wake of the horrible situation, President François Hollande shut the nation's borders and declared a state of emergency.

Reports reveal that on Saturday the city will be closing grocery stories, city hall, and other places where large crowds can gather, in case there are any follow-up incidents.

So, it makes sense that U2's Paris concert for their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour might not happen in light of the horrific events.

A source close to Bono's band told Entertainment Tonight that they "do not see how the show could happen tomorrow."

"I'm a big fan of Irish people who fall down and hurt themselves"

He then joined the band by helping to sing Desire before going solo and doing his best Bono impression and taking the lead vocals!

In true Fallon fashion, he topped it all off with a harmonica solo at the end!

ICYMI: Bono Leaves 80-Year-Old Waitress GENEROUS Tip! Find Out How Much HERE!

| Filed under: Bono

How sweet! At least he gave her a hefty tip instead of a free digital copy of U2's album!

Bono totally made a waitress' day early Friday morning after his band performed at The Roxy that previous evening.

It was 3 a.m. when the U2 frontman and some of his friends walked through the doors of Canter's Deli in El Lay and he was waited on by Bella Haig, an 80-year-old waitress who had been at the restaurant for 50 years.

[ Watch: U2 Sing A Song For Someone In Honor Of Red Nose Day ]

After they were seated, the 55-year-old basically asked the woman to serve him with whatever she felt like he should have.

Bella remembered thinking after he told her to pick an appetizer for him:

"I went to the back and I said 'this guy doesn't look Jewish, but I'm going to get him some matzah ball soup with carrots and noodles and chicken.'"

Shortly after, she recommended the Reuben sandwich, and according to onlookers, Bono also got french fries, onion rings, and a chocolate chip rugelach dessert on the house!

That definitely sounds like a late night meal/early breakfast for a rock star!

When everyone was done with their meal, the Irish musician paid the bill and gave Bella a $150 cash tip! Cash. Tip. On a bill that was less than $20!

She said of the generous move:

"Wow, I lucked out, I was thrilled. I was surprised it was that much."

The veteran waitress says she's going to use the cash to take her family out to dinner!

That huge tip is one way of showing appreciation! He must've really enjoyed the food there.
