PARIS (CNN) — Eagles of Death Metal took the stage in Paris Monday for the first time since terrorists killed 90 people at the rock band’s last concert in the French capital.
U2 frontman Bono gave the band an emotional introduction.
“They were robbed of their stage. … Tonight, we give them ours,” he told the crowd.
At the concert, which is set to be broadcast on HBO, fans sang along, waved their arms in the air and recorded videos on their cell phones as Eagles of Death Metal sang a cover of Patti Smith’s “People Have the Power.”
The concert and television broadcast were postponed in the wake of the Paris attacks. HBO and CNN are both owned by Time Warner.
In an interview with Vice last month, Eagles of Death Metal lead singer Jesse Hughes vowed the band would continue to make music.
“I cannot wait to get to Paris,” he said. “I cannot wait to play.”
On Monday, the band played alongside U2 at the Accorhotels Arena.
But Hughes told Vice the band also hopes to play again at the Bataclan theater, where they were performing when attackers stormed in last month.
“I want to be the first band to play in the Bataclan when it opens back up,” he said, “because I was there when it went silent for a minute.”
