(TeamRock) Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes was denied entry to last night's reopening of the Bataclan in Paris. Hughes and an unnamed bandmate turned up at the venue as Sting was set to play the first gig there since last year's terror attacks which saw 90 people murdered by extremist gunmen.

The Eagles Of Death Metal were playing at the venue on November 13 last year when the gunmen burst in and opened fire and also detonated suicide bombs as part of a wider assault that left 130 dead across Paris.

Hughes caused uproar when he suggested staff at the Bataclan must have been involved in the attacks. He apologised and blamed his remarks on trauma, but repeated the claims in a later interview.

His comments led to French music festivals Rock en Seine and Cabaret Vert pulling Eagles Of Death Metal from their events.

Bataclan co-director Jules Frutos tells AFP: "They came, I threw them out - there are things you can't forgive." Read more here.
