U2 Reschedules Paris Concert & HBO Show for December 7

U2 has announced that their Paris concerts, originally scheduled to kick off the day after the Paris terrorist attacks, have been rescheduled.

The band will perform in the City of Light’s Accorhotels Arena on December 6 and December 7. The second show will be filmed and aired on HBO that night.

“So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable,” Bono said in a statement. “For one night, the killers took lives, took music, took peace of mind – but they couldn’t steal the spirit of that city. It’s a spirit our band knows well and will try to serve when we return for the postponed shows on December 6th and 7th. We’re going to put on our best for Paris.”

“The band wanted us to reschedule as soon as possible so that they could honour the commitment to their audience,” U2‘s tour promoter and producer Arthur Fogel added.

You can watch U2‘s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour on Monday, December 7 at 9/8c on HBO.
