(from France 24, 16.)

American rock band Eagles of Death Metal returned to Paris on Tuesday to play an emotionally charged concert in front of hundreds of survivors of the November 13 terror attacks, which claimed the lives of 130 people.

The show is taking place under tight security at the Olympia concert hall in the centre of the French capital. The band’s frontman, Jesse Hughes, has promised that it will be “a regular rock show”, despite a warning from a psychologist who has been treating survivors that the gig could trigger panic.

"Rock and roll for me has always been fun and I am not going to let anyone take that away from me or my friends," he said, referring to the band's fans.

In a series of interviews ahead of Tuesday’s concert, Hughes recalled the moment gunmen stormed the Bataclan music hall in eastern Paris while his band was onstage, killing 89 people.
