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.
More than 80 of the band’s fans were massacred by gunmen who stormed the Bataclan theater in the French capital during the concert.
The Israeli production of the summer show managed to get in touch with one of Eagles of Death Metal’s managers on Saturday and was told that none of the band members were hurt in the attack.
The wife of drummer Julian Dorio told NBC News that he had told her everyone on stage managed to escape and make it to a police station.
