Paris: Band Frontman Weeps At Scene Of Attack

Members of the US band Eagles of Death Metal broke down in tears as they returned to Bataclan Theatre where 90 people were killed.

They silently laid flowers & read cards at the site, which has become a shrine to those who lost their lives during the Paris attacks.

Some band members embraced, some wiped away tears.

Eagles of Death Metal made a surprise return to Paris on Monday night and  performed alongside U2 , their first on-stage appearance since the 13 November attacks.

"They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago & we would like to offer them ours tonight," said frontman Bono as he hugged the band's lead singer Jesse Hughes.

The crowd cheered & sang along as the two groups joined together for a version of the Patti Smith song People Have The Power.

U2 then left the stage & the American band performed I Love You All The Time, telling the crowd: "Thank you Paris – we love you. We will never donate up rocking & rolling."

Their poignant performance took place at the AccorHotels Arena – not far from the Bataclan Theatre, which remains shuttered.

Eagles of Death Metal had only just begun playing at the Bataclan when gunmen burst into building & opened fire.

The band members escaped the carnage by hiding in a dressing room, yet their merchandising manager, Nick Alexander, 36, was among the victims.

Hughes recently said he would like the group to return there when the concert venue reopens.
