U2 rescheduled their mid-November Paris tour dates following the November 13th attacks, but they’ve rescheduled and the shows will take place next week.
“They took a lot of lives we’re not going to get back, but they’re not going to change the character of the city of Paris,” Bono tells the Associated Press.
Bono says that fans can expect “joy as an act of defiance” from their upcoming shows, explaining, “That’s what U2 does. that’s what French people want from us and that’s it.”
“These are our people and they’re very familiar faces, the people in the audience, they’re our people,” Bono says. “But we’re going back, you bet. Nothing will stop us from going back.”
