Watch Eagles Of Death Metal Join U2 In Paris, Pay Respects At Bataclan
Although Eagles Of Death Metal didn’t join U2 onstage at Paris’ AccorHotels Arena last night as rumored, they did make an appearance at tonight’s U2 concert at the same venue. The two bands performed a cover of Patti Smith’s “People Have The Power” together, after which U2 left the stage. “They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago. We’d like to offer them ours tonight,” Bono announced, before Eagles Of Death Metal launched into a rendition of their song “I Love You All The Time” (which artists have been covering at the behest of the band in support of those affected by the terrorist attacks in Paris last month). Watch the performance below.
