Eagles of Death Metal return to Paris

Fans gave Eagles of Death Metal a warm welcome back to Paris less than a month after their gig turned into a massacre.

The U.S. rockers were on stage at the Bataclan concert hall on November 13th when gunmen opened fire.

On Monday the band was back in action alongside U2 albeit at a different venue.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U2 FANS ALEXIA AND MARIE-CLAIRE CLEMENCE SAYING:

“Yes, it was very emotional, there was a lot of emotion.”

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U2 FAN DAVID FERNANDES SAYING:

“I think it’s very good for us, for them, and well, it was an emotional moment for me.”

(SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED FAN SAYING:

“Eagles of Death Metal, I love you.”

Security was tight for the show.

France is still under a state of emergency after the wave of attacks which killed 130 people.

Eagles of Death Metal say they want to be the first to perform at the Bataclan concert hall when it reopens.
