U2 Joined By Patti Smith In Paris, Not Eagles Of Death Metal

U2 were joined on stage by Patti Smith at their Paris concert at the AccorHotels Arena on Sunday night (Dec 6), according to Billboard and the Irish band paid tribute to the victims of recent terrorist attacks.

The band was originally scheduled to play in Paris last month but their shows were postponed after the November 13th terrorist attacks. They paid tributes to the victims of the attacks as well as last week's attack in San Bernardino, Ca during the rescheduled concert on Sunday night.

During the concert, U2 displayed the names of the victims of the Friday the 13th attacks on a large screen on the stage. The display included the colors the French flag (blue, white and red).

Bono reportedly told the crowd, "We stand together with the families who lost their loved ones in Paris," according to the Irish Independent. He then addressed the attack in the U.S. this past week and elsewhere, "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."

There was a rumor that U2 would be joined by the Eagles Of Death Metal at the show. The rock band's Paris concert was the site of one of the Nov. 13th attacks but U2 issued a statement before Sunday night's show informing fans that they would not be performing with the rock group.

U2 said, "We're back in Paris and it's great to be here. Some people have been saying that Eagles of Death Metal will appear on stage with U2 tonight. This is not the case. We have another surprise guest planned for tonight's show.‎"

Billboard reports that they were told by an unnamed source that U2 would be joined by the Eagles Of Death Metal at one of the Paris shows. They are scheduled to perform at the same venue tonight (Dec. 7th).
