US rock band Eagles of Death Metal has announced dates for a rescheduled European tour, including a return to Paris.

The band was performing at the Bataclan in Paris on November 13, when 130 people were killed in coordinated terror attacks across the city.

Just over a month after the attacks, the band said it would play at the Olympia Theatre in Paris on February 16, 2016.

Concertgoers who attended the Bataclan show will be given free tickets to the upcoming Paris show.

Jesse Hughes, Eagles of Death Metal’s frontman and co-founder, said the band were always going to finish what it started.

“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,” Hughes said in a statement.

“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.”
