Eagles Of Death Metal in emotional return to Bataclan.

PARIS– After joining U2 during the band’s HBO-taped iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE concert in Paris, Eagles of Death Metal thanked Bono and the band for sharing the stage with them. The group – who made their return to Paris on Monday night for the first time since 89 people lost their lives during the horrific attacks on November 13 – were spotted outside the venue.

Last night marked EODM’s first visit to Paris since the Nov. 13 attacks that killed 130 people in the French capital including 89 people who were attending their show at the Bataclan concert hall. Members of the band were seen in front of the venue as they hugged and bowed their heads in front of flowers and tributes placed by mourners following the shocking events just weeks ago.

In a Facebook post, the band thanked the Irish stars and said they had “reminded us that the bad guys never take a day off, and therefore we rock ‘n rollers cannot either… and we never will”. During the concert, U2 added a poignant mark of respect to the victims of the attacks with a huge display of the French tricolour and the names of those who died on a screen in the centre of the AccorHotels Arena.

They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, and we would like to offer them ours tonight.” There were emotional scenes as they performed Patti Smith’s song People Have the Power, with lead singer Jesse Hughes taking a French flag from the audience and draping it around his shoulders.
