  • Eagles of Death Metal have returned to Paris for the first time since the November 18 terror attacks. Last night, during a U2 concert, Bono welcomed EODM to the stage, saying, "They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago. We would like to offer them ours tonight." Together they performed a cover of Patti Smith's "People Have the Power," which you can watch on Periscope around the 32 minute mark. This morning EODM's Jesse Hughes and Julian Dorio visited the Bataclan Theater, where they were playing when the attacks took place, to pay their respects to the 89 people who lost their lives.

It’s our song." It's been a hot minute, but it seems Prince has finally relented. Watch the performance below. [CoS]
