Eagles of Death Metal finished the gig. Three months after the brutal terror attack that centered on Bataclan, where they were performing live, the band traveled to L’Olympia and played for survivors.
Some went out of solidarity. Some went to show the terrorism accomplished nothing. And the band went because there was never a question, according to them, of returning and finishing their show.
The night appeared emotional for all—a fitting tribute to Parisians’ perseverance. The fan video above shows the band’s rendition of “Don’t Speak (I Came to Make a Bang),” and the energy in the house is palpable. Watch it for an intimate view of the night’s musical reconciliation.
