DUBLIN (AP) — Bono predicts the U2 concerts in Paris next week will be “joy as an act of defiance.” U2 were scheduled to play Paris on November 14 and the show was going to be broadcast that day on HBO. U2 canceled because the attacks at the Eagles of Death Metal concert and at other sites in Paris that left 130 dead the day before. U2 will play Paris on Sunday and Monday. Bono says the gunmen “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.” Bono says he expects the audience at the concerts to drown out the band, and he says U2 is “very loud.” The concert will be shown on HBO on Monday.
