Eagles of Death Metal Join U2 At Paris Concert Following Terror Attacks (VIDEO)
Eagles of Death Metal, the band that was playing at the Bataclan concert hall at the time of the Paris terror attacks, joined U2 on stage at the band’s concert in Paris on Monday night. Watch the video below.
As Gossip Cop reported, nearly 100 people were killed at the Eagles of Death Metal show last month when three gunmen opened fire on the crowd. The band was unharmed, but among those who died were employees of their record label.
As we also noted, U2 was slated to perform in Paris just one day after the attacks, but the event was cancelled in the immediate aftermath of the shootings and explosions. The Irish rock band rescheduled its Paris shows and performed on Monday night at the AccorHotels Arena.
At one point during the concert, which is being filmed for a HBO special on U2’s “Innocence + Experience” tour, the band brought on stage Eagles of Death Metal as a surprise. Immediately, the crowd of around 16,000 gave Eagles of Metal Death a massive ovation. U2 and the American rock band then performed the Patti Smith song, “People Have the Power,” before Eagles of Death Metal sang their tune, “I Love You All the Time.”
U2 frontman Bono also gave an emotional tribute to those who lost their lives during the attacks, projecting the victims’ names on a large video screen, and sending prayers to the families who lost loved ones. Tell Gossip Cop what you think about the collaboration between U2 and Eagles of Death Metal following the Paris terror attacks.
