U2 unveil new song about Paris ahead of two concerts in the French capital

U2 have unveiled a new song written about Paris, entitled Streets of Surrender (SOS), ahead of their two concerts in the French capital.

The band are set to perform the new song at the gigs at the  AccorHotels Arena later tonight and tomorrow.

Also joining U2 on stage will be Eagles of Death Metal who were playing the Bataclan Theatre where 89 people died during the attacks.

Appearing with Edge on the CNN show Fareed Zakaria GPS, Bono spoke about the defiance Parisians have shown and about how important it is to fight this kind of terror with love and joy.

“They’re a death cult. We’re a life cult. Life force,” he said.

"The celebrating, all the things we love – food, soccer – they’re trying to, you know, they’re trying to destroy those things. They don’t like women. What else is there?

The band’s concerts in Paris were rescheduled to take place today and tomorrow and HBO will be airing: U2: Innocence and Experience: Live in Paris.
