The band were performing at The Filmore in Detroit when Healy took a moment during the show to share his feelings on the attack that killed 22 people at Manchester Arena.

“I’m f**king pissed off,” he said. “I’m bored. I’m bored of nationalism and I’m bored of racism. Whatever. It’s over. Nationalism, religion, all these regressive things, they’re over. We can’t carry on in the way that we’re carrying on,” he said.

“Now listen. I don’t know anything about anything, right. I’m just a person who’s objectively on here,” Healy continued. “We’re from Manchester, right, and where we used to hang out, the actual place where we used to hang out, someone put a bomb in there tonight and then killed a bunch of kids that were going to a f**king show in Manchester.”

Also speaking out on the tragedy is U2 frontman Bono. During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday, the singer said the incident was an attack on “everything we love.”

“They hate music. They hate women. They even hate little girls. They hate everything that we love,” he said. “And, you know, the worst of humanity was on view in Manchester last night, but so was the best as people took perfect strangers into their houses and cued up blood banks.”

Bono added that Manchester has an undefeatable spirit and will move forward following the attack.
