Sources tell Billboard that Eagles of Death Metal will join U2 at the band’s rescheduled Paris concert this Saturday night at the AccorHotels Arena for the show’s final performance. Reports suggest that Josh Homme will join Eagles of Death Metal at the performance (he wasn’t present at the Bataclan attacks) as well. Representatives of the band had no comment for Billboard about the reports.
Eagles of Death Metal released a statement at the time of Paris Attacks on their Facebook page, that they were caught in the middle of:
“While the band is now home safe, we are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France. Our thoughts and hearts are first and foremost with our brother Nick Alexander, our record company comrades Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, and all the friends and fans whose lives were taken in Paris, as well as their friends, families, and loved ones.
Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together, with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.
We would like to thank the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments, and especially all those at ground zero with us who helped each other as best they could during this unimaginable ordeal, proving once again that love overshadows evil.
All EODM shows are on hold until further notice.
