U2 okay after attacks in Paris
This post has been updated.
As you are probably aware, tonight in Paris there were a series of attacks in the 10th and 11th districts. The number of casualties is unknown, and the information on what exactly has happened is rather fluid at the moment. The Edge's cousin, Ciara Lawrence-Evans, has tweeted that everyone in the band is safe and unharmed. @U2.com have heard confirmation of their safety from a U2 spokesperson. Fans attending a party hosted by french fansite U2Achtung are also okay, with their party stopping early to ensure that everyone is able to get to safety.
A state of emergency has been declared and the concerts scheduled for 14 November and 15 November have been postponed to yet unknown dates. A concert in Sweden was previously postponed due to a security breach.
Reports of hostages at a concert arena relate to the Bataclan venue, not AccorHotels Arena where U2 are set-up. The GA midnight check-in has been cancelled. If you are in the city, please do not go to queue up. Stay in a safe location. The French borders have been closed at this time. If you are outside the country and plan to attend tomorrow, please wait for details before attempting to travel into the country.
We will update if we hear anything further.
