The devastating Paris terrorist attacks shook the world earlier this month when simulated bombings and shootings happened all around town. One of the venues was the Bataclan theatre.
Eagles of Death Metal were playing for a huge crown when out of nowhere, a terrorist attacked people who partook on the concert, which resulted to the death of 89 individuals.
Despite the tragic incident, Eagles of Death Metal returned to Paris for a surprise appearance during U2’s concert, the other famous band playing in town when the attacks occurred. Bono, the lead singer of U2, proclaimed the welcome of Eagles of Death Metal onstage and stated, “They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago – we would like to offer them ours tonight.” The band was due to play during an encore performance, referring to Eagles of Death Metal as U2’s brothers, reported Independent.
Both bands rocked their hearts out at the AccorHotels Arena yesterday, a venue not far from where the previous attacks occurred. This was Eagle of Death Metal’s first appearance since the attacks. While the band was performing, Jesse Hughes, the lead vocals of the band, said, “Paris we love you and we will never give up rock and roll.”
In other news, BBC News reported that Bono embraced Hughes while they performed a joint rendition of Patti Smith’s “People Have The Power” onstage. Eagles of Death Metal performed “I Love You All The Time” separately.
After the U2 and Eagles of Death Metal performance, one of the audience said, “It’s historic and important, it really is.”
According to the report, the Irish band U2 was also robbed of their concert performance like Eagles of Death Metal when they had to postpone their gig due to the terrorist attacks.
