IRISH supergroup U2 has canceled its scheduled concert in Paris after terrorists gunned down more than 100 at a rock concert at a small club.

"As a result of the ongoing state of emergency across France, the U2 Paris concert scheduled for 14th November will not be going ahead as planned," read a statement on the band's website.

"Live Nation, along with HBO who were due to live broadcast the Saturday concert, are fully resolved to go ahead with this show at an appropriate time."

How does the Paris attack make you feel about your safety?

No different. These were isolated extremists who want us to feel scared. I won't let them win.


A little unsafe. This could happen anywhere, with any target.


Really worried. I don't think Australia is prepared for an attack like this.


It makes me less likely to visit Europe, but I feel safe here.


This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

The band said in a statement: "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.

"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."
