The band left flowers in tribute to the victims and read others that had been left outside the venue.

Asked whether he could describe how he felt to be there by the waiting media, Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes shook his head.

The group were performing at the Bataclan on November 13 when gunmen stormed the building, killing 90 concertgoers. It was one of a series of attacks across Paris in which a total of 130 people died.

The California band escaped the carnage by hiding in a dressing room backstage and later told how they want to return to Paris to finish their performance.

Their return to the Bataclan comes the day after they proclaimed "Paris we love you" during a performance with U2 at the AccorHotels Arena in the French capital on Monday night.

Introducing the band to the stage, U2 frontman Bono told the crowd at the arena: "They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago - we would like to offer them ours tonight."

During the performance, Eagles Of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes vowed: "Paris we love you and we will never give up rock and roll."

The two bands then performed Patti Smith's People Have the Power together before Eagles of Death Metal sang I Love You All The Time.

In a post on their Facebook page after the gig, Eagles of Death Metal thanked U2 saying they had "reminded us that the bad guys never take a day off, and therefore we rock 'n rollers cannot either ... and we never will".
