Frontman Jesse Hughes took to the stage, screaming the heavy rock cliche “is everybody having a good time” before the band tore into Patti Smith’s ‘People have the Power’.
The spectacle was met with screams from Paris’ AccorHotels Arena as the two bands stood in solidarity after the city’s deadly terror attacks less than a month ago.
Introducing the band, U2 superstar Bono told the 16,000 capacity arena: “They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago and we would like to offer them ours tonight.”
The sick terror attacks in Paris took the lives of 130 people including 89 in the Bataclan theatre where Eagles of Death Metal were performing.
Frontman Hughes had previously said: “Our friends went there to see rock and roll and died. I want to go back there and live.”
The emotional display came as a shock to fans, after heavy rumours forced U2 to claim the American rock band would not be joining them onstage.
