NEW YORK (AP) — U2 has rescheduled two shows in Paris postponed after the Nov. 13 attacks in the city.

In a statement Monday, frontman Bono promised the band would “put on our best for Paris.”

From Dublin, Bono said the gunmen and bombers who killed 130 people “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.”

U2 had been due to play Paris Nov. 14 and 15; the new concerts were scheduled for Dec. 6 and 7.

Tickets for the canceled shows will be valid for the rescheduled dates, and the Dec. 7 show is due to be broadcast on HBO, like the first November show.
