Irish rockers and rapper paid tribute to 29 tragic New Zealand miners during a concert in the country on Thursday, November 25. The men had been stuck underground at the Pike River mine since last Friday, November 19, but they are now all thought to be dead after a second explosion hit earlier this week.

U2 marked the tragedy at their gig in Auckland by scrolling the names of all 29 miners across the Mt Smart Stadium's screens, while frontman told the crowd, "People have ways of dealing with grief. In Ireland we sing." He then blasted into a rendition of hit songs "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and "One Tree Hill".

Hip-hop star Jay-Z, who was opening for U2, also honored the men, saying, "They will always be in our hearts and they will always be forever young", before dedicating track "Forever Young" to the lost men.
