(hennemusic) U2 have announced the rescheduled dates for a pair of concerts they had scheduled in Paris that were cancelled following the November 13 terrorist attacks in the city.

The band will perform at the Accorhotels Arena in Bercy on December 6 and 7, with the second show filmed and broadcast December 7 on HBO at 9:00 p.m. ET.

"So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13 is irreplaceable," said Bono, speaking from Dublin ahead of Monday's 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."

"The band wanted us to reschedule as soon as possible so that they could honor the commitment to their audience," added U2 Innocence + Experience tour promoter and producer Arthur Fogel. Read more here.
