They’re back: U2 have rescheduled their Paris gigs

“So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable,” said Bono, speaking from Dublin ahead of tonight’s opening show of four in their hometown.

“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.”

Meanwhile, the December 7 gig will be broadcast live on HBO as part of the rockers  iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour.
