Eagles of Death Metal will be playing at Leeds Festival 2016.
The US band announced today that they will return to Europe next year to complete their postponed tour dates, including a return to Paris. The rescheduled trek – The Nos Amis Tour – will see the band set to finish the tour that was cut short by the events of November 13th at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris.
The Bataclan Theatre will not be open again in time for the band’s return on this tour, but fans who were at the show will be entitled to a free ticket for the rescheduled Paris date at the Olympia Theatre on February 16th.
EODM co-founder and frontman Jesse Hughes said:
“The people of Paris have always been incredible to us, and our feeling of love towards this beautiful city and its people has been reinforced a million times over this past month. Hearing the stories of the survivors, the injured and those who have lost loved ones has been overwhelming. Not returning to finish our set was never an option. We look forward to coming back in February and continuing our mission to bring rock ‘n’roll to the world.”

Ahead of their homecoming gig in Leeds tonight, the Kaiser Chiefs have announced they are donating some of the ticket sales to charity.
CLIC Sargent, a children's cancer charity, and the Leeds Children's Charity - who provide fun experience for sick and abused children - will be the benefactors of the rocker's show at the O2 Academy.
Leeds Children's Charity is both excited and humbled by the offer made to them by the Keiser Chiefs. As one of the oldest charities in Leeds it is fantastic that our work is being supported by such a brilliant local band. We are also honoured to 'share the billing', so to speak, with Clicsargent, as both our organisations work with young people who are in need of support.
The Kaiser Chiefs are doing something very special for the young people of Leeds in December and on behalf of Leeds Children's Charity I would like to say thank you.
