​U2 postpones Paris concert after attacks

NEW YORK -- U2 has postponed its Saturday night concert in Paris in the light of the deadly attacks across the city Friday night.

Instead, the band says in a statement that it is resolved to go ahead with the concert "at an appropriate time."

"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," the band said in a statement on its website. "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".

HBO had planned to televise the band's performance. It says it will replace the planned show with the film "Jersey Boys."
