U2 Tribute Manchester Victims At London Show

U2 paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack that occurred last May during a performance in London earlier this week. The band ripped through a set jam-packed with their hits during the show and handed out signs for fans to hold up reading “Give Peace a Chance” and “Resistance.” Before playing the song “Get Out of Your Own Way,” Bono explained that fans have the power to stand in the face of oppression, noting: “Protesting, in the end, works. It gets things done, slowly and surely. This song is like a protest song against yourself, really, because it turns out some of the biggest obstacles we encounter on the way to a better world is often ourselves,” said the singer, introducing the future single. The show was part of the ramp up to the MTV European Music Awards, which take place this week in London. Copyright(c) 2017 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
