During their performance last night (December 7th) at the Bercy Arena in Paris, Irish rock legends U2 brought out the Eagles of Death Metal for a special surprise performance. This was the first time that Eagles of Death Metal have returned to a Paris stage since the deadly attacks at their Bataclan show November 13th.
In an emotional speech by U2 frontman Bono, he told the packed arena: “they were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, so we’d like to offer them ours tonight.”
This isn’t the first time U2 has shown their support for EODM, after Bono revealed last week he offered the band use of his private jet and purchased them cell phones following the attacks.

First joining together for a cover of Patti Smith’s 1988 classic “People Have The Power,” U2 then left the stage to let EODM perform their single “I Love You All The Time” alone. Last week the American band penned a note, asking musicians worldwide to cover the Zipper Down single,so they could donate all royalties to the families of the Paris Attack victims.
