U2 pleas for peace, performs first concert since Paris



bonoU2 called for the end of all terrorism and honored victims of terrorist attacks during its Belfast concert Nov. 18, which was the band’s first concert since its cancelled Paris concert last weekend.

Besides honoring victims of Paris with an Eiffel Tower peace logo and the slogan, “Stronger than fear,” U2 also paid tribute to victims of Northern Ireland violence and showed clips of Irish terrorism footage on a screen during a performance of the band’s 1983 single “Sunday Bloody Sunday.”

“What was happening up here made a big impact in our teenage years,” Bono told the audience, according to the Belfast Telegraph.
