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.

U2 Visits Bataclan After Paris Attacks, Bono Talks Canceled Show

Bono places flowers down on the pavement at a memorial near the Bataclan Theatre on Saturday night (November 14) in Paris, France.

The 55-year-old rocker was joined by his U2 bandmates to pay their respects near the site of the terrorist attack that took place the day before.

Bono opened that day in an Irish radio interview about the Paris terror attacks and to explain why the band had to cancel their HBO concert scheduled for tonight. The band was rehearsing just three miles away from the Bataclan concert venue on Friday when terrorists fired upon the audience at the Eagles of Death Metal show.

“Our security locked it down pretty quickly and we got our team and our crew out of there safely,” Bono said. “We came to the back door of the hotel. Everyone congregated and watched the TV like everybody else in disbelief with what was happening. We’re all safe.”

“Our first thoughts at this point are with the Eagles of Death Metal fans,” he said. “If you think about it, the majority of victims last night are music fans. This is the first direct hit on music that we’ve had in this so-called War on Terror or whatever it’s called. It’s very upsetting. These are our people. This could be me at a show. You at a show, in that venue. It’s a very recognizable situation for you and for me and the coldblooded aspect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that’s what I can’t get out of my head.”

When asked about the HBO concert, which has been postponed until further notice, Bono said, “we didn’t call it off. It was cancelled, honest, and I understand perfectly why … It’s up to the French authorities and the city to decide when we can go back.”
