U2 are in talks to lead a concert to benefit the victims of the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015, and their families, according to HollywoodLife.
“Bono, the Edge, Adam and Larry have discussed doing a concert to help the families of victims of the Paris attacks,” a source told HollywoodLife. “They want to help in any way and would bring in their pals for a musical extravaganza benefitting all those affected.”
Bono and Edge own a home in Eze-Sur-Mer in the South of France.
“They’ve played in Paris so many times, and Bono has a real affinity with France,” the source said. “He was really emotionally affected by the events and will do anything he can to ensure the best musicians in the world would join the band for a one-off concert.”
U2 is currently on tour and canceled two of their concerts in Paris after the attacks, including a show that was scheduled to be broadcast live on HBO.
“We didn’t call it off,” Bono said in an interview. “It was canceled, honest, and I understand perfectly why… It’s up to the French authorities and the city to decide when we can go back.”
