Their was no raucous, hard-hitting tune that accompanied Eagles of Death Metal when they solemnly packed-up out of their temporary Paris-dwelling last Saturday night, Nov. 14.
According to Mirror, the garage-rock combo were housed not far away from the tragedy-stricken Bataclan theatre located at 50 Boulevard Voltaire were they barely escaped being gunned down by frenzied jihadist gunmen during a live performance.
Founding Jesse Hughes was first spotted in a dismal mood. The rest of the band members: David Catching (guitars), Matt McJunkins (bass) and Eden Galindo (guitarist) also conveyed the same toned-down attitude along with the rest of their band crew. It was as they were escorted hauling their suitcases and band gears by armed police officials into several heavily-tinted automobiles.
This was the first sighting of the American act prior to the mass concert shooting which was part of a six location attacked by extremists on the capital.
An American bystander, who witnessed the Eagles of Death Metal’s departure, mentioned that “It was obvious they had just experienced a tragedy. It was a very sad thing to witness.”
“They were quickly getting into the cars, wanting to leave this place as soon as possible,” the bystander who was also on a Parisian holiday added.
In a report from Yahoo!, the international disaster that the band has recently unfortunately embroiled themselves is now considered the “deadliest concert tragedy” of all time. The reported 118 body-count which involved the band’s merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, tops the bill of other live performances wherein lives were lost due to freak accidents, fan riots and plain violence.
Due to recent developments in the capital of France, hard rock band Motorhead followed suit in cancelling their upcoming tour as cited by The Hollywood Reporter.
The “Ace of Spades” veterans were supposed to have a live performance in the Zenith Theater in Paris but were requested by the Ministry of Culture to shelve their show.
