Eagles Of Death Metal, the band performing at Le Bataclan theater during last month's terror attacks in Paris, joined U2 for a concert in the city today, the band's first since the attack. "They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, we'd like to offer them ours tonight." Bono said before introducing the band. EODM then joined U2 to perform a cover of Patti Smith's "People Have The Power." You can read a statement from EODM's Jesse Hughes below and watch footage of the concert above.
U2's entire performance will air tonight on HBO.
“We want to offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for everything our brothers in U2 did for us in the aftermath of the November 13 attacks. They reminded us that the bad guys never take a day off, and therefore we rock ’n rollers cannot either… and we never will. 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. We look forward to fighting the good fight on many more fronts very soon, especially when we pick up our tour in 2016. See you again in February, Paris.”
