One Direction Asks For a Moment of Silence During Concert to Honor Paris Terror Attack Victims
By Desiree Murphy
One Direction paid their respect to the people of Paris, France, after more than 100 people died following city-wide terrorists attacks in the French capital on Friday.
Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan took the stage for their "London Sessions" concert in association with Apple Music on Saturday in London, England. Before beginning their set, they observed one minute of silence for Paris. They asked their audience of selected fans -- who were flown in from all over the globe to attend the intimate show -- to join them.
The band issued a joint statement on Twitter prior to the concert.
"We would like to send our thoughts and condolences to those who have been affected by the heartbreaking tragedy in Paris this weekend," the screenshot of the iPhone note, signed by all four boys, read.
