Eagles Of Death Metal return to Bataclan

14 November 2017 Music News


Two members of Eagles of Death Metal performed at a surprise gig in Paris yesterday to mark the second anniversary of the Bataclan attack.

The band were performing at the Bataclan on November 13 2015 when terrorist gunmen stormed the venue. 89 people were killed during the attack, which was one of six co-ordinated attacks on Paris that night that killed a total of 130 people.

 Singer Jesse Hughes and guitarist Dave Catching returned to Paris to perform in a memorial ceremony that was organised by survivors of the attack, which took place at the town hall of the 11th district.

They sang ‘I Love You All the Time’ and ‘Save a Prayer’ – the last song they played before the shooting began.

“I’m so happy and pleased to see all of you,” Hughes said to the crowd, before handing them white roses. “The only reason we’re still standing is because you all still love rock and roll.”
