Published Feb 16, 2016Three months on from the terrorist attacks in Paris, Eagles of Death Metal returned to the city tonight (February 16) to perform for survivors. Joining the rest of the band onstage was Josh Homme, who put in a rare live performance with the group.
The concert took place at Paris's Olympia concert hall, with the Guardian reporting that there was a heavy security presence, as well as 30 psychologists on hand. Survivors from last year's tragic Eagles of Death Metal concert at Le Bataclan were given free entry to the show.
You'll find fan footage [via Stereogum] of Homme handling drums during the band's "Don't Speak (I Came to Make a Bang)," "Speaking in Tongues" and a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" down below.
Last night, the band reportedly danced and played darts with survivors of the Bataclan shooting, which claimed the lives of 89 people. A report from CNN, which you can also see below, had Homme calling the night "beautiful."
As previously reported, Eagles of Death Metal will go out on a Canadian tour with Death From Above 1979 later this year. You'll find the date info over here.
