Undeterred by the unfortunate events in Paris, the band agrees on the importance of their touring now more than ever.
The last time the Eagles Of Death Metal performed in France, their concert fell victim to a terror attack that shook the world. The band later returned for a concert and also started a charity campaign to help the victims’ families. Now, just a few months after the incident, the band is all set to make their debut appearance at the Byron Bay Bluesfest.
In an interview with musicfeeds, Bluesfest founder Peter Noble described the Eagles Of Death Metal‘s decision to keep touring following the attacks as inspiring. “The fact that they are coming out and playing live, I just can’t think of a braver act by a band.” “Those of us in the music industry that feel that this is important, from all around the world have gone out and supported the band’s desire to tour by the simple act of booking them.”
The festival takes place at the lush Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm over 5 days and features the likes of The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, Chain, Playing For Change Band, Backsliders, Kendrick Lamar, D’Angelo, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
