Eagles Of Death Metal enter midweek UK chart following Paris terror attacks

Band's cover of Duran Duran's 'Save A Prayer' is currently at Number 96

Eagles Of Death Metal have entered the UK Singles Chart after a campaign to get the band to Number One in the aftermath of last week’s tragic terrorist attack at their gig in Paris.

At least 129 people were killed and around 350 are injured after a series of violent attacks in the French capital on Friday night. Music venue Le Bataclan was the worst hit, with 89 civilians killed during a shooting at Eagles Of Death Metal’s concert.

An online campaign was recently launched to get the band’s cover of Duran Duran’s ‘Save A Prayer’ to the top spot to “show solidarity against terrorism and support for peace”.

The Official Charts Company have announced that midweek figures see the group at Number 96, with this expected to rise in the days to come.

One Direction are hoping to see their fifth studio album ‘Made In The A.M’ top the UK Album Chart on Friday. Justin Bieber is currently just behind the boyband with his fourth album ‘Purpose’.
