Eagles of Death Metal band members visit Paris theater where they survived massacre

Members of the California rock band Eagles of Death Metal are back at the ravaged Paris theater where they survived a massacre by Islamic extremist suicide bombers.

They came Tuesday to the now-shuttered Bataclan theater in eastern Paris, whose facade has become a shrine to the at least 89 people killed inside. Silently and solemnly, band members lay flowers at the site. Some embraced, some wiped tears.

The band made a surprise return to Paris and performed with U2 on Monday night, their first on-stage appearance since the Nov. 13 attacks.

The band members escaped the carnage by hiding in a dressing room. Co-founder Jesse Hughes said in an emotional interview with Vice and HBO that he wants the group to return there when the concert venue reopens.
