Band Playing At Bataclan Concert Venue Had Previously Told Roger Waters Where To Go

US rock band Eagles of Death Metal were the band playing at the Bataclan concert venue in France that was attacked by Islamic terrorists on Friday. An attack that claimed the life of the band’s merchandise manager along with over 88 other people.

And here’s an interesting fact about the band: when they played in Tel Aviv in July, they told Roger Waters where to go. But less politely than that.

Definitely the good guys. Glad they emerged unscathed.

Update: And they are coming back to Israel!

US rock band Eagles of Death Metal, whose concert was the target of a deadly terror attack in Paris on Friday night, is scheduled to perform in Israel this summer. Last July, the group played a gig at Tel Aviv’s Barby Club, and after talks with producer Shuki Weiss, its members promised to return next summer.
