U2 Pays Tribute To Terror Victims At Paris Concert

U2 were supposed to play two shows at AccorHotels Arena in Paris last month, but they both ended up getting postponed in the wake of the tragic terrorist attacks. This weekend, however, the band returned to Paris, and they performed the first of the two concerts tonight. They honored who lost their lives by displaying the names of the dead in the shape and colors of the French flag with a peace sign overlaid on it. “We stand together with the families who lost their loved ones in Paris,” Bono said, as the Irish Independent reports. “We stand together with families in San Bernardino. We stand together with families in Beirut and Istanbul. We stand together before those with false ideologies of the god they serve.” Contrary to some reports before the concert, U2 were not joined onstage by Eagles Of Death Metal — although that might still happen at tomorrow’s show — but they were joined once again by Patti Smith, who performed her songs “Gloria” and “People Have The Power” with the band. Watch their performance and see the tribute to Paris below.
