The legendary Irish rock band U2 will perform their rescheduled concerts in Paris on December 6th and 7th, which will be broadcast on HBO at 9 pm eastern time. The concerts were originally scheduled for November 14th and 15th but were postponed because of the terrorist attacks of November 13th that took the lives of 130 people, 89 of which were killed in the Bataclan concert hall where Eagles of Death Metal was performing.
U2’s music has always exhibited anti-terrorist ideas in the lyrics of their songs, almost certainly because of the band’s background and because lead singer Bono grew up in an area frequently targeted by terrorists.
Almost all of their recent shows have featured a “simulated bomb” that goes off during the performance of the song “Raised By Wolves,” a song that explicitly states how horrible terrorism is in the eyes of the band. We’re sure U2 will show their support to the families of the victims, and Bono himself admits that he’s enthusiastic about the concert for this very reason.
