Eagles of Death Metal play return show in Paris

Paris, Feb 17 (IANS) Four months after terrorists stormed American rock band Eagles of Death Metal’s concert at the Bataclan concert hall here, the group returned to the French capital to play a comeback show.

The band were performing when four Islamist militants stormed the Bataclan on November 13 last year, killing 90 people.

Taking to the stage, frontman Jesse Hughes bounded on in a red cloak. The 43-year-old looked emotionally overwhelmed and stood in awe of the sold out crowd, reports mirror.co.uk.

Hughes also made a peace and heart sign to his fans.

He prayed and said: “Let’s take this moment to remember.”

After performing four tracks, he added: “This is a room full of champions. I f****** love you.”

Hughes also paid tribute to his British friend Nick Alexander, who was selling merchandise at the venue when he lost his life.

He dedicated the band’s song “What I Want” to Alexander.

“This next song goes out to my friend Nick Alexander. I love that motherf*****. Nick I love you so good,” Hughes said.

Psychologists were mingling with the audience in case flashbacks to the attacks caused concert goers to panic.

There was also a support group called Life For Paris.

Formed by victims after the attack it is now 500 members strong.
