REUTERS: Eagles of Death Metal make powerful return to Paris after attacks

Eagles of Death Metal, the band which was performing when the deadliest of the Islamic State attacks took place in Paris on Nov. 13, made an emotional, powerful appearance at a U2 concert in the city on Monday.

Led by frontman Jesse Hughes dressed in a white suit at a packed AccorHotels Arena, the Californian rock band gave a rendition of Patti Smith’s “People have the Power” before performing their own “I Love You All The Time.”

“Nothing left except to introduce you to some people whose lives will be forever part of Paris. These are our brothers, they were robbed of their stage three weeks ago,” U2 frontman Bono said at the end of the last gig of their Innocence and Experience tour after the American band’s remaining European shows were canceled in the wake of the attacks

U2, which provided the band with logistical help after the attacks, had denied it would appear on Sunday, when Patti Smith came onto the stage to close the first of two shows.
