The band added that they would be playing a short, intimate set of old material for concertgoers already en route to the show at the Belasco Theatre, in Los Angeles, California. “We send our love and prayers to the people of Paris,” the band concluded in their statement.
Singer Chris Martin opened the show with a moment of silence for the people of Paris, and the band played a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" in tribute.
Bieber later decided to carry on with the evening's planned concerts and livestreams. “We decided we are going to continue with the livestream at 6PM to hopefully bring some light & hope to those hurting,” he tweeted.
Bieber later deleted the tweet, posting a simple Instagram pic with an image of a peace sign with the Eiffel Tower in the middle, designed by artist Jean Jullien, with the hashtag "PrayForParis."
