I'm just back from Paris, at least my heart is still in Paris.

 

 

 

We've attended the IEU2 shows 10 & 11 nov 2015 in Bercy FANTASTIC Rockshows with all the great new songs lots of passion shared in Bercy these 2 nights.

 

 

then came Bombs, Blood and Tears ..........................

Our tickets for 14 & 14 nov 2015 are still in our pockets.

PARIS isn't safe ... this is not the moment

Please don't come Back in town U2 now

Cancel these shows

People Died

Rock Fans died

Our Hearts are with them

In the city of Lights

Amen

Touching post, electricco. Similar thoughts here, too.

We arrived in Paris on Friday, the mind full of joy and excitement, to see once again the unforgettable gig the next day, from the band which I`ve loved for over 30 years and which has been such a big part of my life and even into part of my personality.
So, quick hotel check-in, and then directly to the bar nearby for a couple of beers. Well, it took only a second or two when the TV news began to tell what has happened. The first thoughts were that this should not be true what you just see. But were they, unfortunately.
The atmosphere changed immediately. Tomorrow's gig was no longer the most important thing. Instead, grief stepped in ... We no longer wanted to be in Paris anymore.

You're so right ..... the atmosphere changed immediately

 

We've met people from Brasil (danieli) and from all the planet U2 fans stayed in Paris during this weekend  they couldn't change their plans / hotels and flights booked for months ...

 

If U2 wanted to come back to Paris please wait .... until Next Year.

Hi Bono, Hi Adam, Hi Edge, Hi Larry,

 

Tonight I need to talk, as we French People are experiencing what no human being is supposed to face.  

 

I went to all your Tours since 1987 and, after a long 5 years, it was feeling a great great pleasure that warmed my heart before travelling on Friday to Paris with my 2 Young kids 5 & 8 year old. I was so excited before to come and after having assisted to the 2 fantastic shows you gave in Italy. You know how France loves you and how the atmosphere during the 10th & 11th were from a country that always welcomed U2 and supported your Band,. It was also a great opportunity for our U2 community to meet each others and share our passion for your music and what you are. 

 

1:00 my phone rang, informed by an italian U2 fan about the Tragedy. And then I saw what was happening few hundreds meters from where I was leaving. It was so brutal, so much hurting me. An incredible feeling and compassion for all those who passed away.

8:00 am, my 2 sons came to me smiling, so cute, so Virgin. I looked at them and just thought how this world can be sometimes so extreme. Why these crazy guys cannot understand that Love is all you need.

 

Love that you are singing for years and certainly forever. 

 

I cannot stop to think that 1 day later, few meters from where it happened. We the U2 COMMUNITY could have been the target of these guys. And it make even more real the things.

And have difficulties to imagine how we can plan once more these shows and do like if nothing would have happened.

Because nothing will be like before,

 

You are singing Sunday Bloody Sunday for years and now I do understand why.

 

We will need to find the force to overcome this one, like we did for the 3 last terrorist acts, we had in France over the past few months

 

We will allways be stronger and we will always RUN, even if we have to find the force to do so, we will STAND STILL and never fall ! NEVER

 

Thanks to all the U2 community for your great support.

 

Thanks Bono, Larry, Edge, Adam for the flowers

 

And Love for all the ones who lost someone.

 

WE U2 COMMUNITY WILL NEVER WALK ALONE

Thanks for these posts guys! Good to know you're all ok. I got back a day before the attacks, but I can't imagine how it must have been to be in Paris during the last couple of days.

I am still not over what has happened, can't sleep at night...

 

we were at the concerts of 10th and 11th November, 2 amazing concerts full of passion, both on the stage and from the audience...

 

logically we were waiting for the other 2 concerts with joy, and having a wonderful Holiday in Paris, you know what it's like when you're

waiting for a year to have a Holiday, especially one that includes 4 U2 concerts!!!

 

then the attacks, terrorists destroying lives, what for?! what is going on in the world?!

 

I hope U2 don't return too soon... a lot of the fans come from outside of Paris, from far away, thinking of a lovely fan we've met coming

from Brasil!!! It takes time and money to organize such a trip to the City of Lights...

 

My thoughts and prayers do go to the victims, their families and their friends xx
