U2 makes move to honor children killed at Israeli music festival

 

The news came up as U2 change lyrics to Pride to honour ‘beautiful kids’ killed at Israeli music festival on Sunday.

Check out U2’s X post lately…

During Las Vegas show, a member of U2 Bono says ‘in the light of what’s happened in Israel and Gaza, a song about non-violence seems somewhat ridiculous.’

The band honored hundreds of “beautiful kids” killed at the Supernova music festival in Israel by changing the lyrics to one of their biggest hits at a concert in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Frontman Bono reworded the lyrics to U2’s 1984 breakthrough song Pride (In the Name of Love). He referred to those killed by Hamas fighters as “stars of David”.

Before launching into Pride (In the Name of Love), Bono told the onlookers that a song about non-violence seems somewhat ridiculous, even laughable, but the prayers of well-wishers have always been for peace and for non-violence.

He continued: “But our hearts and our anger, you know where that’s pointed. So sing with us … and those beautiful kids at that music festival.”

On Saturday, Hamas fighters opened fire on the 3,500 people who were enjoying themselves at the all-night electronic music festival, which coincided with the Jewish harvest holiday of Sukkot.

Bodies of more than 260 festivalgoers have been recovered from the site close to the Re’im kibbutz near the border with Gaza.
