U2's Return to Paris

Paris, France:  Over the last few days new rumors have started to surface that the band may be returning to France after the Dublin shows.

However this has yet to be to confirmed. The French authorities will decide when U2 returns to Paris according to Bono's comments during earlier interview.  

The band is currently in Ireland playing a total of 6 shows will continue to finish out this leg of the tour and return to the studio to finish up the next album which is due to be released early 2016. 

Mean time Bono reflected back on the MSG shows; The feeling of Madison Square Garden was just unbelievable. ... The feeling was just "this is who we are; you can't change us,"

Bono said" 'You're not going to turn us into haters, or you're not going to turn us around in the way we go about our lives.' That was the feeling of Madison Square Garden back then, and I hope that will be the feeling at Bercy (the arena in Paris) when we get back there."

Mark Peterson our lead photographer captured the complete MSG residency and has created one of the best U2 concert photo collection available this tour for fans.   Your can purchase this limited edition book directly from the website and the book will be shipped worldwide.

As the events unfolded Brian Murphy Head of U2 security already alerted the band and crew and safely marshaled everyone back to the hotel safely. The city was closed with no airport access, no ground transportation moving in or around the city. The band and crew remained at the hotel to watch in horror as the events unfolded on TV.

Bono spoke out on Dave Fanning's broadcast "This is the first direct hit on music that we've had in this so-called 'War on Terror' or whatever it's called," continued the singer, known for his left-leaning political views. "It's very upsetting. These are our people. This could be me at a show. You at a show, in that venue. It's a very recognizable situation for you and for me and the coldblooded aspect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that's what I can't get out of my head."

The band laid bouquets of flowers on a makeshift candlelight memorial on the pavement next to the scene of the deadliest incident, a shooting attack inside the Bataclan Theatre.

Gunmen shot dead at least 110 people watching the American band Eagles of Death Metal perform at the concert hall. The musicians survived, while Nick Alexander, 36, who worked at their merchandise table during the group's our, was killed, his family said in a statement to Rolling Stone.

At least 129 people were killed in all six attacks, the deadliest to take place in Paris since World War II. The terrorist group ISIS has claimed responsibility.

HBO, Live Nation and U2 are "are fully resolved to go ahead with this show at an appropriate time,"

Our crew will be heading to Belfast and Dublin to capture the final shows for 2015. This has been an interesting year for the band one filled with grief, sorrow, loss and as well as many outstanding memorable times. No word has been given yet for 2016/2017 dates however knowing U2 we would expect the boys to head out on the next leg around the world.


London Calling ! U2 Forth Night

London, Nigel Brown:   Boys forth night of six in London the band threw in a surprise into the set list with " All I Want Is You" 

Few groups would respect playing six evenings at the O2 as a stage down. For U2, whose past, stadium-filling 360° visit kept going two years and was the most noteworthy earning voyage through unequaled, this keep running of dates considers decidedly imply.

The Irish whizzes are advancing their thirteenth studio collection, a year ago's Songs of Innocence, a record discharged in a welter of debate. Ever welded to the amazing signal, the band dropped the collection complimentary into 500 million iTunes records, setting off some entertaining over-responses from grumblers pompously insulted at being sans given music.

U2 have discussed the collection being the most individual of their close to 40-year vocation, and its cathartic nature is delicately reflected in this present visit's organizing. The band start the set spotlit under a solitary light as they fire into a paean to their adolescent musical epiphany, The Miracle (of Joey Ramone), and the punky The Electric Co from their 1980 presentation collection, Boy.

Bono has talked regularly of the overwhelming impact on his mind of losing his mom to a cerebral aneurysm when he was 14, and new track Iris (Hold Me Close) is less a tune but rather more primal shout treatment conveyed from a stadium rock stage. He murmurs Cedarwood Road, about his childhood road, from a lifted metal enclosure among video projections that make him give off an impression of being strolling down that very road

U2's teases with innovation have dependably veered from the front line to the mushy, a pattern proceeded as they force a lady from the group to film Elevation: the flimsy footage turns into a synchronous live stream for endorsers of a versatile video application. More compelling is Every Breaking Wave, a despairing ditty murmured by Bono joined just by The Edge on piano.

U2 would not be U2 in the event that they didn't enthusiastically merge the individual and the political, and October is joined by frightening pictures of the destruction being fashioned by the besieging of Syria. Escaping transients and Isis preparing camps outline Bullet the Blue Sky, as Bono discusses the grievances of commentators of his worldwide activism: "You're a piece of the issue, not the arrangement."
