Eagles of Death Metal perform Nov. 13, at Paris’ Bataclan concert hall moments before terrorists mowed down 89 people.

In another example of not letting the terrorists win, Eagles of Death Metal will finish the concert they had been playing when the Bataclan reopens and will perform in Paris this weekend.

The band, which was performing when terrorists slaughtered 89 people at the Bataclan on Nov. 13, will join U2 for its final song Sunday, Dec. 6, at Paris’ AccorHotels Arena.

And, the band will resume its European tour in February.

EAGLES OF DEATH METAL RECALL BATACLAN CARNAGE

Eagles of Death Metal co-founder Josh Homme, who was not with his band during the attack and does not always tour with his bandmates, will be at the Sunday show, according to Billboard.

Ten days ago, in their first interview since the carnage erupted, the group spoke to Vice and vowed they would finish their tour.

“We don’t really have a choice,” Homme said. “We have to finish the tour.”

Of the 130 people killed in Paris on Nov. 13, 89 died at the Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan.
