Credit: Paolo PellegrinU2 is currently in Paris preparing for a planned live HBO concert broadcast Saturday night, but the status of that event is unclear at press time due to the coordinated attacks throughout the French capital that have left dozens dead.

However, a spokesperson for the band has told the always-credible fan site AtU2 that "everyone is fine," meaning the band and the crew.  In addition, a cousin of U2 guitarist The Edge has tweeted, "Just got a text from my cuz The Edge. All the u2 boys are safe in ."

A U.S.-based rep for the band tells ABC Radio that they are trying to find out the latest on the concert and the band's status.
