Eagles Of Death Metal Join U2 At Paris Concert

(hennemusic) The Eagles Of Death Metal joined U2 in Paris on Monday to perform for the first time since the November 13 terrorist attacks in the city that resulted in 89 deaths during their concert at The Bataclan.

"They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, so we'd like to offer them ours tonight," Bono told the crowd before the pairing launched into a cover of Patti Smith's "People Have The Power."

Following the song, Rolling Stone reports, U2 left the stage so that the Eagles Of Death Metal could close out the evening with their own "I Love You All the Time."

Last week, Eagles Of Death Metal asked their friends in other bands to perform covers of the song, which appears on their 2015 LP "Zipper Down", and donate all proceeds to the victims of the attack. The Dean Ween Group and Savages are among those who have covered the tune so far.

"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," said the band after Monday's show. "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."

U2 tweeted a reply to their fellow rockers, saying "We lent you our stage but you owned it. Thank YOU". Check out video from the show here.
