I’ve always liked U2. Yes, I like their music, from the albums “Boy” and “October”, which I first heard in ’82 or ’83, up to today. But I like them as people. They have always tried to give something back.
Recently their Paris concert was cancelled due to the terrorist attacks. But they still came into the city and showed their commitment to the people of Paris, placing flowers . The also came back for 2 concerts as soon as they could. One thing they did is bring the band Eagles of Death Metal on stage with them. Most of the deaths in the Paris attacks happened at the Eagles of Death Metal concert.
Here are some things U2 did for this band. After the attack they got them new cell phones, the band having lost theirs in the chaos. Then they flew them back to the US on their private jet. Now they have shared a Paris stage with them.
They didn’t have to do any of this.
But they did. And that makes me smile :)
