Update: According to a statement from U2, the Eagles of Death Metal will not be joining the band for their postponed performance in Paris tonight. “Some people have been saying that Eagles of Death Metal will appear on stage with U2 tonight,” the band wrote on their website. “This is not the case. We have another surprise guest planned for tonight’s show.?”
Correction: The U2 show that EODM will join is on Sunday, December 6.
It’s been a few weeks since the tragic attacks in Paris, during which Eagles of Death Metal were performing at the city’s Bataclan music venue when gunmen opened fire, killing 89 people. The band members were all accounted for, and returned to the United States, cutting short their European tour.
Now sources tell Billboard that Eagles of Death Metal will join U2 at the Irish band’s rescheduled Paris concert this Sunday night at the AccorHotels Arena for the show’s final number. Reports suggest that Josh Homme will join EODM at the performance (he wasn’t present at the Bataclan attacks) as well. Representatives of the band had no comment for Billboard about the reports.
