U2 to perform ‘our best for Paris’ in December

u2-1U2 will perform two concerts in Paris on Dec. 6 and 7 since the band canceled its Nov. 14 and 15 concerts after the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks, the band announced in a blog post today.

“So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable,” U2 frontman Bono said in a U2 blog post. “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.”

Tickets for the Nov. 14 and 15 concerts will be valid for the Dec. 6 and 7 concerts, respectively. The Dec. 7 concert will be broadcast live on HBO, which was the original plan for the Nov. 14 concert.
