Coldplay is working on setting up another concert in Los Angeles, after the group’s Friday night show was cut short in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.

The show, at the Belasco Theater in downtown L.A., was scheduled to stream live on Jay Z’s Tidal, however, the livestream was scuttled and the group performed an abbreviated set.

“Due to the events unfolding in Paris, TIDAL, KROQ and Coldplay have decided to postpone the Coldplay livestream and concert,” the group said in a statement. “All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show, with details to follow soon.”

To accommodate those who were already at the venue or on their way downtown, Coldplay did a short acoustic set. After holding a moment of silence and performing a cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine” in tribute to those who lost their lives in Paris, the group played a few of their hits before exiting the stage.

Coldplay also said in a statement on its website: “We send our love and prayers to the people of Paris.”

The violence in Paris killed 129 and injured 352 others. French officials said Sunday that three jihadist cells carried out the coordinated attacks at bars, a soccer stadium and the Bataclan Theatre, where Southern California’s Eagles of Death Metal were set to perform. Nick Alexander, the group’s merchandise manager, was among those killed at the Bataclan.

Several other groups have also changed their schedules following the attacks.

The Foo Fighters canceled the remaining dates of their Sonic Highways World tour, including a concert in Paris.

“It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour,” the band said in a statement. “In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now.”  The group added: “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.”

Meanwhile, U2 canceled two sold-out shows in Paris scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 and Sunday, Nov. 15. HBO’s broadcast of the Saturday show was also scrapped.

Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. visited a makeshift memorial on Saturday near the Bataclan. The group members also placed flowers on a sidewalk near the venue and paid respects to the victims.
