The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has said that musicians should “try not to be afraid” following the Paris attacks.
On November 13 at least 129 people were killed and around 350 injured after a series of violent attacks in Paris. One of the attacks was at the music venue Le Bataclan which was one of the worst places that was hit killing 118 of the public at the Eagles of Death Metal concert.
In a new interview with Loaded magazine, Flowers said he hoped that fans would still go to concerts and that musicians should not “let what happened get the better of us.”
“Some of the greatest experiences in my life have been at concerts. To think that people will be afraid to go to concerts now is a shame. I hope we don’t let what happened get the better of us.”
“I’m not the ambassador for all musicians, And I totally understand why some people have been cancelling tours. What happened was heartbreaking. My heart goes out to the people who died. But I feel it’s important to try not to be afraid.”
