Bono has recently praised Eagles of Death Metal after the way they handled the attacks that took place at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris on November 13th.
U2 were to play in Paris on the day after the attacks but had to cancel the shows after what happened. One of the shows in Paris was meant to be a HBO special which would be broadcast around the world.
The band recently rescheduled their Paris shows with Bono speaking to the Associated Press about them . He said “We’re very, very of course moved by the fact that our fellow troubadours, the Eagles of Death Metal, had such a hard time; they’re an extraordinary talented band, they’ve been through the most ugly nightmare and they have been very graceful about it.”
Bono also spoke about what the French fans should expect from the shows “Well, knowing our French audience and having a sense of them by now, I would say joy as an act of defiance. That’s what U2 does, that’s what French people want from us and that’s it. 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.”
