Eagles Of Death Metal To Resume European Tour
Eagles of Death Metal will return to Europe to resume a tour that was cut short when terrorists invaded the band’s November 13th performance at Le Bataclan in Paris and killed over 80 people. The group has dubbed the tour the “Nos Amis Tour” and it will included a show in Paris.
EODM co-founder and frontman Jesse Hughes said, “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. 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.”
Fans who were at the Bataclan show on November 13th will be entitled to a free ticket for the rescheduled Paris date at the Olympia Theatre on February 16. The tour begins at Stockholm’s Debaser Medis on February 13 and includes stops in many European cities. EODM have also announced that they will return to the U.K. to play the Reading and Leeds festivals.
