Hollywood Offers Tribute To Paris Attacks: One Direction, Coldplay And More

By on

A few days ago, the whole of Paris came to a standstill when a few terrorists attacked them. While the whole world is praying for them, few of our musicians too gave a heartfelt tribute to the ones who lost their lives in the attack.

At their concert on Saturday night, the boys held a minute’s silence for the victims caught up in Friday night’s terror atrocities. And on Sunday night, following their performance on X Factor Live Finals, the boys were pictured wearing tricolor ribbon, reported Mirror UK.

And prior to the concert, 1D paid tribute via Twitter. ?We would like to send our thoughts and condolences to those who have been affected by the heartbreaking tragedy in Paris this weekend,” read one of the band’s updates. Niall Horan wrote on Friday, ?Thoughts and prayers for those people involved in the situation that has occurred in Paris this evening… Very sad.?

And Liam Payne said, “The world just lost peace its a scary place and it’s hard to take I really hope everybody is ok pray for France.”

Coldplay was due to livestream a concert of new material from their forthcoming album A Head Full of Dreams via Tidal and KROQ this weekend, but after the attacks in Paris, the band stripped down the show and only played older, acoustic versions of songs from their vault, reported Entertainment Weekly.

?Tonight?s live stream for TIDAL & KROQ has been postponed out of respect for the terrible events in Paris,? the band wrote on their website. ?We?ll play a short set of old material so that your journey isn?t wasted. We send our love and prayers to the people of Paris.?

Not just the band, a Parisians too mourned on Saturday, a man began playing John Lennon?s Imagine on a grand piano outside of the Bataclan theatre, the site of one of the attacks. Davide Martello, who was in a pub in Konstanz in Germany when the attacks began, decided within minutes to put his piano on a trailer and make the 400-mile trip.He towed his piano with his bike through the city streets in Paris, stated Think Progress.
