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."
