"They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, we'd like to offer them ours tonight," says Bono.

Eagles of Death Metal returned to the stage in Paris on Dec. 7 for the first time since last month's attacks on the city, joining U2 at the AccorHotels Arena.

"They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, we'd like to offer them ours tonight," Bono said announcing the special guests, according to Twitter user U2start.  

The two bands performed a cover of Patti Smith's "People Have the Power" during the second and final night of U2's run at the arena. Then, Eagles of Death Metal closed the show with their own song "I Love You All The Time."

Smith, herself, joined U2 to sing the song Dec. 6.

U2's shows were rescheduled after the Nov. 13 Paris attacks when terrorists coordinated a series of deadly attacks on the city, including the Eagles of Death Metal show at the Bataclan concert venue. During both U2's performances, they paid tribute to those who died in the attacks by displaying the victims' names on a large screen in blue, white and red.
