Eagles Of Death Metal have returned to Paris three months after terror attacks left 89 people dead.

The Californian band were performing at the Bataclan concert hall on 13 November when Islamist militants stormed the venue. The raid during the show was one of seven coordinated attacks across Paris, which killed 130 people.

The Bataclan has been closed since the attack, so Eagels Of Death Metal resumed their set at the French capital’s Olympia Theatre. At the end of the gig, an 89-second silence took place to remember the victims.

In an interview with French news channel, iTELE on Monday, frontman Jesse Hughes spoke of the “overwhelming” support the band had received.

"There's been just such an outpouring of support for us and love for us. It's overwhelming.

"I just don't want to let anyone down."

He added, "I think that's what we really need to do is just have fun together so that we can put some of this... behind us and really leave it there so it doesn't follow us around for the rest of our lives."
