Eagles Of Death Metal have returned to the stage with U2 in Paris.

Rock fans in Paris saw the emotional return of the Eagles of Death Metal on Monday night, when they joined U2 on stage in a show of unity and support after the terror attacks in the city last month.Less than a month ago on Friday, November 13 Eagles were performing a short distance away at the Bataclan theatre when terrorists stormed the venue and opened fire on fans killing 89.

Bono and Eagles frontman Jesse Hughes, 43, sung together while Jesse, who was cheered on by the crowds, yelled: “Is everybody here having a good time?” Professor Stephen Hawkins voice was projected saying “let us be one…and our future be a place we want to visit” while an image of the world with the hashtag #refugeeswelcome appeared. The concert was U2′s curtain call on the acclaimed Innocence + Experience Tour, the second show in a two night run after the Irish stars rescheduled their concerts which were originally due to be held in the days after the attacks. During “In the Name of Love,” the names of all 130 victims who were killed in seven different co-ordinated attacks were displayed on a screen in the arena, which holds 20,000 people.

Another fan Bertrand Hodot added: “This has been a great night for the French public, I was here to support the Eagles, it has been a really inspirational night.” 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.

Bono said: “We must also think of the terrorists’ families … I know it is hard right now.” The singer said the attackers’ families had also been robbed of their loved ones, by “an ideology that is a perversion of the beautiful religion of Islam”. Parisian Vera Golloch said she had never seen U2 before, but in the circumstances everybody wanted to be “here tonight especially because of who they are with”.
