Eagles of Death Metal are to head out on tour again, including a show at Paris’ Olympia, and a slot at Reading & Leeds.
The band’s tour last month was cut short when terrorists attacked their show at The Bataclan, killing 89 people.
“The people of Paris have always been incredible to us, and our feeling of love towards this beautiful city and its people has been reinforced a million times over this past month,” frontman Jesse Hughes explains.
“Hearing the stories of the survivors, the injured and those who have lost loved ones has been overwhelming. Not returning to finish our set was never an option. We look forward to coming back in February and continuing our mission to bring rock ‘n’ roll to the world.”
A statement also explains:”Fans who were at the Bataclan show on 13 November will be entitled to a free ticket for the rescheduled Paris date at the Olympia Theatre on February 16th. They must contact their original ticket supplier between January 5th and January 20th to claim their ticket. Unfortunately, the Bataclan Theatre will not be open again in time for the band’s return on this tour.”
