Members of Eagles Of Death Metal gave a surprise performance at a service marking the second anniversary of the terror attack on their Bataclan gig.

Lead singer of the USA band Eagles of Death Metal, Jesse Hughes performs at Paris 11th district town hall, France, November 13, 2017, during a ceremony held for the victims of the Paris attacks which targeted the Bataclan concert hall as well as a series of bars and killed 130 people.

The attacks on Paris occurred on November 13, 2015, and were carried out by ISIS militants in a series of places in the city, including Le Bataclan, a restaurant, and Stade de France as the French soccer team was playing against Germany.

French President Emmanuel Macron and Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo led the outdoor tribute in the 11th district near the venue. NME reported that he spoke of their merchandise manager who was a victim of the attack.

According to Billboard, the band performed its song "I Love You All the Time" as well as a cover of Duran Duran's "Save a Prayer".

According to Agence France-Presse, an emotional Hughes told reporters: “It is hard to not to remember the people who were taken from us like our friend Nick Alexander (a merchandizer for the band) and so many others. The statement reads, "We continue to stand with Jesse & Eagles of Death Metal". In 2016, Sting became the first performer to play the Bataclan since its reopening one year later.
