He tells the New York Times, “I suppose the Irish in us just doesn’t want to give in to terrorism.” But after the city canceled all events, Bono says they turned their focus to helping the Eagles of Death Metal, the band whose show was one of three sites targeted by the terrorists. He says they offered access to their private jet and provided new cell phones to contact friends and family as they left everything behind when they escaped the venue.

Bono says the band’s singer, Jesse Hughes took him through every moment. “They really need proper counseling, though. Not from a well-meaning Irish rock star. Because post-traumatic stress disorder is a real issue for people who go through these things. They’re going to come through fine, but it was pretty bad.”

But he says they haven’t made major changes to the rescheduled shows for this coming Sunday and Monday. “If you were to write a script for Paris, and if it was U2 playing, you’d come up with a show similar to what we have. That’s the funny thing. But it’s not only joy as an act of defiance; it’s business as usual as an act of defiance. This is not a concert for heroes. This is just: Do your thing. That’s what the French want us to do. We’re doing what we’re told.”
