The rock band Eagles of Death Metal returned to Paris on Monday to perform with U2, less than a month after their show at the Bataclan was targeted by terrorists, who killed 89 people inside the venue.
U2 frontman Bono introduced the group by calling them "our brothers" who were "robbed of their stage three weeks ago, and we would like to offer them ours tonight." Together, the bands performed "People Have the Power," and Eagles of Death Metal also played its song "I Love You All the Time." On Facebook, the band thanked 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," and also expressed gratitude "to everyone in the world who continues to prove that love, joy, and music will always overcome terror and evil." The concert was filmed for HBO, and immediately premiered Monday night.
