(Radio.com) During their Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance this week, Irish rockers U2 addressed the terrorist bombing attack on fans at a Manchester, England Ariana Grande concert that left 22 dead and many more injured.

"[The terrorists] hate music, they hate women, they even hate little girls," Bono said during their appearance on the late TV show on Tuesday night. "They hate everything that we love. And, you know, the worst of humanity was on view in Manchester last night.

"And so was the best, as people took perfect strangers into their hands and queued up for blood banks. Manchester has an undefeatable spirit, I can assure you."

The band posted the interview on its official Twitter account with the hashtag #Manchesterstrong. Read more here.
