    *****UPDATE*****

    canceled a few minutes ago

    Friday night, the band posted this statement on their website:
    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. Speaking from Paris the band said, “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. 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.”

    This just goes to show that those terrorist are clueless to some things. They could have done a lot more damage at a U2 concert.

    I think The Edge was under investigation for short selling Boeing stock.
