EAGLES OF DEATH METAL will return to Europe in 2016 to complete their postponed tour dates, including what will surely be an emotional 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 tragic events of November 13 at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris.
Fans who were at the Bataclan show on November 13 will be entitled to a free ticket for the rescheduled Paris date at the Olympia Theatre on February 16. They must contact their original ticket supplier between January 5 and January 20 to claim their ticket. Unfortunately, the Bataclan Theatre will not be open again in time for the band's return on this tour.
Fans who previously bought tickets for the remaining European dates will have a pre-sale window beginning Thursday to re-purchase their re-funded tickets. They will need to provide proof of original purchase.
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL co-founder and frontman Jesse Hughes says: "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."

The attacks in Paris led to a military response by France against the radical Islamic organization ISIS, as French jets bombed a series of targets in Syria.
The murders have stepped up worldwide concern over ISIS, as well as a debate in the U.S. over whether to accept Syrian refugees.
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL was founded in 1998 by QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE mainman Josh Homme and his longtime friend Jesse Hughes. Homme appears on all the band's albums but only plays live with them occasionally.
The band's most recent album, "Zipper Down", was released in October and entered at No. 59 on The Billboard 200 album chart. The first single is called "Complexity".
