Eagles of Death Metal play in Paris for attack survivors

Colin Paterson of the BBC writes on February 17, 2016, “Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes described last night’s Paris show as the continuation of the one they started in November. That night, 89 of their fans were shot dead. What surprised me here was the utterly euphoric atmosphere.”

During the first song, ¬†the music cut for “89 seconds of silence”.

A number of survivors of the November 13, 2015 attack attended the concert.¬†British survivor Patrick Moore said: “The music definitely won over – terrorism didn’t.”
