U2 performed the first of two rescheduled concerts in Paris Sunday night, and paid tribute to the victims of terror attacks in the French capital last month, as well as San Bernardino, Calif. last week.
Singer Bono greeted the crowd at the AccorHotels Arena with "Vive la France" at the start of the show, and later draped himself in a French flag for part of the encore, according to The Associated Press. "We stand together with the families of those killed in Paris. We stand together with the families of those killed in San Bernardino," he said. "We are all Parisians. There are few words to speak to the loss you are feeling in this city tonight."
On a giant screen, the band projected the names of the victims in the shape of the French flag, with a peace sign in the middle.
U2 was scheduled to perform in Paris on Nov. 14 and 15, with the first concert to be broadcast live on HBO, but elected to postpone the shows after the terrorist attacks on Nov. 13.
Members of the band Eagles of Death Metal, who were playing at the Bataclan Theater when it was attacked on Nov. 13, were in the front row of U2's show on Sunday. There are rumors that they may join the band on stage for Monday'sconcert, which will be broadcast live on HBO.
On Sunday night, U2 was joined by singer Patti Smith to perform "Gloria" and "People Have the Power." Check out a video of the performance below:
