2 Years After Paris Attacks, Eagles of Death Metal Play Surprise Show in City
The band was performing inside Le Bataclan when the terror attack took place.
Singer Jesse Hughes and guitarist Dave Catching of the California rock and roll band played a surprise concert in Paris Monday night at a memorial service marking the anniversary where 89 people lost their lives inside the tiny concert venue as the band played two years ago.
The tribute was led by France's president, Emmanuel Macron, outside the venue. The French president and the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, led a minute of silence before the victims’ names were read.
Hughes hugged Macron before performing two songs, his band’s track “I Love You All The Time,” and a cover of Duran Duran’s “Save a Prayer.”
The 80's glam rockers also posted on Facebook Monday in solidarity with the American band, saying, “We continue to stand with Jesse & Eagles of Death Metal.”
After performing, Hughes and Catching handed out white roses to those gathered at the memorial.
The attacks on Paris occurred on November 13, 2015, and were carried out by ISIS militants in a series of places in the city, including Le Bataclan, a restaurant, and Stade de France as the French soccer team was playing against Germany.
In total, 130 people were killed in the simultaneous attacks and more than 500 were injured.
