Eagles of Death Metal Make Powerful Comeback at U2’s Paris Concert.

The Californian rock band whose show at the Bataclan concert hall ended in tragedy when gunmen massacred 90 of their fans returned to Paris on Monday night in a life-affirming display of defiance. “We love you, Paris,” the lead singer, Jesse Hughes, said before singing “People Have The Power” in front of an audience of more than 16,000 at the AccorHotels Arena, less than two miles from the Bataclan.When gunmen stormed the Bataclan theatre in Paris during an Eagles of Death Metal show last month, leaving 89 people killed and many more injured, the members of U2 were not far away, rehearsing for a two-night concert that was set to kick off the following evening in that city. We’re still free.” Earlier U2’s Bono told the crowd: “Tonight we are all Parisians.” Many had tears in their eyes as he lamented the loss of 130 lives in coordinated attacks in Paris on November 13 claimed by Isil. The names of the 130 dead were shown on a huge screen and the finale was an inspirational moment when the audience and band members appeared to enjoy a shared resolve that love and joy could triumph over horror.

We are incredibly grateful to U2 for providing us the opportunity to return to Paris so quickly, and to share in the healing power of rock ‘n roll with so many of the beautiful people – nos amis – of this great city.” “Thank you to Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam, thank you to their wonderful management, thank you to France, and thank you to everyone in the world who continues to prove that love, joy, and music will always overcome terror and evil,” they continued. “We look forward to fighting the good fight on many more fronts very soon, especially when we pick up our tour in 2016.
