Billboard has reported that On December 5, U2 performed a tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks. During the performance they brought out Patti Smith to perform the songs “Gloria” and “People Have The Power”.

 

At their performance at the AccorHotels Arena, U2 performed in front a giant French flag composed of the names of the victims. Bono and Patti Smith recently performed this same set of songs in London. Since that time, Bono told the Irish Independent:

 

“We stand together with the families who lost their loved ones in Paris. We stand together with families in San Bernardino. We stand together with families in Beirut and Istanbul. We stand together before those with false ideologies of the god they serve.”

 

You can watch the performance of Gloria below.

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
