Sam Jones/HBOU2 has announced makeup dates for the band’s two concerts at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris that were postponed in the wake of the terrorist attacks that took place in the city November 13. The shows, which had been scheduled for November 14 and 15, now will be held December 6 and 7.

“So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13th is irreplaceable,” says U2 singer Bono in a statement. “For one night, the killers took lives, took music, took peace of mind — but they couldn’t steal the spirit of that city. 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.”

Adds U2 tour promoter and producer Arthur Fogel, “The band wanted us to reschedule as soon as possible so that they could honor the commitment to their audience.”

Meanwhile, the canceled television broadcast of U2’s Paris concert that was to have taken place November 14 on HBO now is scheduled for December 7. The special, titled U2: iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Live in Paris, will be filmed live that day and will premiere at 9 p.m. ET.

Tickets for the November 14 and 15 concerts will be honored for the December 6 and 7 shows, respectively. Ticket holders who are unable to attend the rescheduled performances may receive refunds at their point of purchase through Monday, November 30.

Prior to the Paris shows, which now will close out U2’s 2015 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour, the band will play four concerts at the 3Arena in its hometown of Dublin, Ireland — tonight, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
