U2 will return to PARIS on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6th and MONDAY, DECEMBER 7th to play their two concerts postponed from earlier in NOVEMBER at the ACCORHOTELS ARENA in BERCY. Tickets for the previously scheduled NOVEMBER 14th performance will be valid for the DECEMBER 6th event. Tickets for the previously scheduled NOVEMBER 15th performance will be valid for the DECEMBER 7th event.
Speaking from DUBLIN ahead of tonight’s opening night of U2’s four-night run in their hometown, BONO commented: “So much that was taken from PARIS on the tragic night of NOVEMBER 13th is irreplaceable. 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.”
LIVE NATION's U2 tour promoter and tour producer ARTHUR FOGEL added, “The band wanted us to reschedule as soon as possible so that they could honor the commitment to their audience.”
As originally planned, U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE TOUR will be broadcast live from PARIS on HBO. The concert on MONDAY, DECEMBER 7th will be filmed live and shown on HBO at 9p (ET) that night.
