Bono has dedicated a new song about freedom and love to the 130 people murdered by terrorists in Paris last month.
During an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria, Bono revealed he'd written a song for veteran Italian blues and rock singer Zucchero Fornaciari but had decided to reclaim and release it as The Streets of Surrender.
Then, at length, Bono ran through the song's dramatic lyrics, which boil down to being a plug for all kinds of "freedom".
In the aftermath of the November 13, attacks most bands in the French capital pulled the plug on shows.
But the U2 concerts were quickly rescheduled. The band appear at the 16,000-capacity AccorHotels Arena in the French capital on Sunday and again on Monday.
