Eagles of Death Metal revisit Bataclan theatre in wake of Paris attack

Members of US rock band Eagles of Death Metal have paid an emotional visit to the ravaged Paris concert hall where they survived a massacre by Islamic extremist suicide bombers.
They went to the Bataclan theatre in eastern Paris, whose facade has become a shrine to at least 89 people who were killed inside.
Silently and solemnly, the band members lay flowers at the site. Some embraced and some wiped away tears.
The band made a surprise return to the capital and performed with U2 on Monday night, their first on-stage appearance since the November 13 attacks.
The band members escaped the carnage by hiding in a dressing room. Co-founder Jesse Hughes said in an emotional interview that he wants the group to return there when the concert venue reopens.
