On June 8, the world lost a prominent person, Anthony Bourdain, who committed suicide. Apart from being a celebrity chef, the 61-year-old was also a travel documentarian, author, and a famous TV personality.

A few days following his death, the Irish rock band, U2, decided to honor the late chef while throwing a concert at the Apollo Theater. First, the band’s lead singer, Bono, candidly spoke about losing many inspiring people over the last few years, such as Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell. By doing so, he alluded to frequent cases of suicide among famous people.

And then, U2 devoted a song to the late Bourdain. Titled "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of", this Grammy-winning song was written by Bono after his close friend, Michael Hutchence, had taken his life.

In it, the lead singer tries to convince his friend that this act is full of foolishness. Bono did not have a chance to argue with Hutchence about suicide, so he translated all of his anger and thoughts into a song.

Of course, U2 were not the only ones to pay a touching tribute to Bourdain. His fellow celebrity chefs, including Gordon Ramsay, Thomas Keller, and Daniel Boulud, also took to various social media platforms to express their condolences.

Here are their heartwarming tweets and posts shared
