eagles of death metal

Three months after the tragic terrorist attacks on Paris, the Eagles of Death Metal returned to the French capital on Tuesday (February 16) to perform a redemption show at the Olympia concert hall for all the fans who survived the massacre caused by Islamic extremist suicide bombers.

The show, which included songs like "Don't Speak (I Came to Make a Bang)," "Wanna Be In Paris," and "I Love You All the Time" to name a few, was attended by about 900 survivors and served as a milestone for attendees. You see, some of them are still recovering from their physical and emotional injuries, so they had to actually overcome certain struggles to make their way to the show. 

Billboard reported that survivor Florian Novac felt apprehensive about attending, but changed his mind after examining the security measurements. "After the attacks ... I felt apprehension even being at the movies. Now I'm not afraid, I am confident," he said.

Not only were there armed police guards at the venue, but attendees also had to bypass through three bag and body searches before making their way to their seats to see the California rock band.
