Coldplay Pays Tribute to Paris Attack Victims

by at .

Coldplay has paid homage to the victims of Friday's heinous terrorist attacks in Paris, France.

The band was scheduled to do a livestream of new tracks from its upcoming album (“A Head Full of Dreams”) late last week.

However, following the devastating attacks abroad, Chris Martin and company opted instead to turn the show into an emotional dedication for the victims.

"Tonight's live stream for TIDAL & KROQ has been postponed out of respect for the terrible events in Paris," the group wrote on its website.

"We'll play a short set of old material so that yourjourney isn't wasted. We send our love and prayers to the people of Paris."

Coldplay, of course, is referencing the mass shootings in Paris on Friday, as multiple terrorists coordinated an attack that killed over 130 people.

With these victims and their loved ones in mind, Martin and the rest of Coldplay held a moment of silence prior to kicking off the short show with a beautiful cover of John Lennon's "Imagine," sending a powerful message of peace to all viewers. 

Along similar lines over the weekend, John Oliver went viral with his rant against the terrorists, while Saturday Night Live paid homage via a unique speech from Cecily Strong and Madonna gave an impassioned speech on stage.
