U2 will return to Paris in early December to play their two concerts postponed from the November Paris terrorist attacks. The new dates – Sunday, December 6th and Monday, December 7th at the Accorhotels Arena in Bercy – are confirmed by Live Nation.
“So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable,” said Bono, speaking from Dublin ahead of Monday’s (Nov 23rd) 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.”
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.”
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. Complete ticket information below.
And, 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 will be shown on HBO at 9 pm ET.
Tickets for the previously scheduled performances will be honored at the door.
Tickets for the previously scheduled November 14th performance will be valid at the December 6th event.
