Eagles Of Death Metal Make An Emotional Return To Stage In Paris

A few weeks after suicide bombers stormed their concert at the Bataclan theater, Eagles of Death Made a surprise return on a stage in Paris with U2.

For the first time since the terror attacks in France that killed 130 people last month, Eagles of Death Metal returned to the stage in Paris with U2.

The rock band was playing in the Bataclan theater on Nov. 13 when suicide bombers stormed their performance, killing 89 people.

"These are our brothers, our fellow troubadours," said Bono, as the band took to the stage in a surprise appearance at the end of a U2 concert in AccorHotels Arena. "They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, and we would like to offer them ours tonight."

Fans put their hands up in the air as Eagles of Death Metal sang a cover of Patti Smith's "People Have the Power."

On their Facebook page, Eagles of Death Metal thanked U2 for the chance to perform Monday.

"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. They reminded us that the bad guys never take a day off, and therefore we rock 'n' rollers cannot either ... and we never will," the band said. "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."
