"We want to offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for everything our brothers in @u2 did for us in the aftermath of the November 13 attacks," EODM Instagrammed following their Monday show. "They reminded us that the bad guys never take a day off, and therefore we rock 'n rollers cannot either …and we never will. We are incredibly grateful to U2 for providing us the opportunity to return to Paris so quickly, and to share in the healing power of rock 'n roll with so many of the beautiful people – nos amis – of this great city."
