U2 had originally been scheduled to perform on November 14, just a day after the attacks, and the concert was meant to be aired live on HBO. They instead postponed the show, booking two separate shows at Paris’ AccorHotels Arena on December 6 and 7.
Following the performance the band’s lead singer, Jesse Hughes, posted a statement to the band’s Facebook page, saying, in part,
“Thank you to Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam, thank you to their wonderful management, thank you to France, and thank you to everyone in the world who continues to prove that love, joy, and music will always overcome terror and evil. We look forward to fighting the good fight on many more fronts very soon, especially when we pick up our tour in 2016.”
