Eagles Of Death Metal announce Paris return and join Reading and Leeds 2016 line-up

Band to return in February 2016

Eagles Of Death Metal have rescheduled a series of European live dates that were cancelled after the terrorist attack at their gig in Paris last month (November).

Eighty-nine people were killed by terrorists at the band’s gig at Paris’ Le Bataclan music venue on November 13. The venue was the worst hit during a series of of violent attacks in the French capital. A total of 130 people were killed and around 350 injured.

Following the tragic events, the band have now announced rescheduled dates for early 2016. These will stretch through February and March, before the band return in August. The run of dates includes a return to Paris, this time at the Olympia venue, on February 16.

Fans who were at the Bataclan show on November 13 will be entitled to a free ticket for the rescheduled Paris date. They must contact their original ticket supplier between January 5-20 to claim their ticket. The Bataclan Theatre will not be open again in time for the band’s return on this tour.

Eagles Of Death Metal have also announced that they will return to the UK to play Reading and Leeds 2016, their only UK festival performance.
