After having their November 14th and 15th concerts postponed, U2 are heading back to Paris next week to perform on December 6th and 7th. The shows will be broadcast at 9 pm Eastern time on HBO, so make sure to watch them. The concerts were moved to December because of the terrorist attacks of November 13th that killed 130 people in total, among which 89 lost their lives at the Eagles of Death Metal concert taking place at the Bataclan concert hall.
U2’s music has always exhibited anti-terrorist ideas. Lead singer Bono himself has stated on multiple occasions that he grew up in a place that was often targeted by terrorists, which led him to feel very strongly about the idea of social justice and anti-terrorism. U2 is eager to show their support to the victims’ families, and Bono says that is one of the main reasons he’s looking forward to the concert in Paris.
