Nearly a month after their sold-out show at the Bataclan concert hall was stormed by terrorists and became a scene of carnage, the Eagles of Death Metal returned to Paris, joining U2 for a show at the city's AccorHotels Arena.

Video posted on U2’s website showed Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes dressed in a white suit, bounding around stage during a cover of Patti Smith’s “People Have the Power.”

Fans were ecstatic.

The appearance came on the second night of two U2 concerts at the arena. On Sunday, the band was joined by Patti Smith. That night, against a massive screen that showed the names of the victims of the Nov. 13 attack, U2 frontman Bono told the crowd, "Tonight we are all Parisians."

"We stand together with the families whose children have been taken hostage by an ideology that shows none of the mercy or compassion of the god they deem to serve," he said.

During the November attack, a British merchandise manager working for the Eagles of Death Metal, Nick Alexander, was killed.
