Eagles of Death Metal to return to Paris with U2

Posted by on December 4, 2015

By now, you’ve probably had a chance to witness Eagles of Death Metal’s moving interview with Vice, where they relived the attack at the Bataclan in Paris as they were playing. 89 people were killed by terrorists in the attack, and as heart-wrenching as the interview is, it ends with a note of hope, saying the band hopes to return to Paris to finish the concert that was interrupted by the massacre. It looks like they’ll get that chance this weekend.

Eagles of Death Metal said they wanted to be the first band to play the Bataclan when it reopened. While it’s not yet reopened, a source tells Billboard that the band will join U2 for the final song this coming Sunday (6) at Paris’ AccorHotels Arena. The U2 show had been scheduled to take place the weekend of the attacks and be broadcast on HBO. It was postponed in the wake of the attacks, The source also says that Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, who drums with the band but doesn’t tour with them, will join them onstage with U2. If we were to guess what song they’ll do, we’d go with “I Love You All The Time,” their song that they’re asking other artists to cover for charity. HBO will air U2: Innocence + Experience Live in Paris on December 7 at 9PM ET.
