Eagles of Death Metal return to Bataclan
Members of rock band Eagles of Death Metal returned to Paris concert hall Bataclan on Tuesday for the first time since the Nov. 13 attack. The California band was performing when gunmen stormed the venue during their show and killed 89 people. According to the New York Times, the band stood outside the venue in the rain laying flowers and reading tributes to the deceased for about 10 minutes. When asked how he felt, band leader Jesse Hughes only shook his head. EODM joined U2 at their Monday night concert at AccorHotels Arena a few miles away. They performed Patti Smith’s “People Have the Power;” she performed the same song with U2 at that venue Sunday night. Monday’s concert ended with U2 leaving the stage to Eagles of Death Metal to perform their song “I Love You All the Time.”
