Less than one month after the horrific terrorist attacks that targeted their show at the Bataclan in Paris, L.A. rockers Eagles of Death Metal brought their music back to The City Of Light. And they did it with some help from U2.
U2, who had postponed a series of Paris shows (including a live HBO special) following the attacks, returned to the city this week for their rescheduled concerts. At last night’s show, Bono and Co. invited Eagles Of Death Metal on stage to help bring the music back to Paris.
“They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago,” Bono told the crowd. “So we’d like to offer them ours tonight.”
EODM joined U2 to perform an inspiring cover of Patti Smith‘s “People Have The Power,” and then, as promised, the Irish rockers turned over the stage to let the L.A. band perform their song “I Love You All the Time.”
It was an incredible, heartwarming moment for both the bands and the audience. Watch U2 and EODM join forces above.
After the show, the bands posed for a photo together to document the special moment.
