HBO’s U2 Paris Concert Special Rescheduled For Dec. 7

HBO has set Dec. 7 as the new date for the U2 live concert special that was postponed because of the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris.

The band had been set to perform Nov. 14 at the Accorhotel Arena outside Paris. But after 129 people were slain in coordinated terror attacks, the concert was quickly postponed.

The new plan for “U2: Innocence + Experience Live in Paris” will bump the planned premiere of “Very Semi Serious: A Partially Thorough Portrait of New Yorker Cartoonist.” That docu will now air at a later date.

“So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable. For one night, the killers took lives, took music, took peace of mind – but they couldn’t steal the spirit of that city,” U2 frontman Bono said. “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 U2 special, billed as an immersive multimedia experience, will be produced by Done And Dusted and exec produced by Hamish Hamilton, Simon Pizey, Davis Guggenheim and Guy Oseary, with Hamilton directing.
