EAGLES OF DEATH METAL frontman Jesse Hughes and an unnamed bandmate were denied entry to last night’s reopening of the Bataclan in Paris.
They turned up at the venue as Sting was set to play the first gig there since last year’s terror attacks where 89 people were killed.
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL were playing at the venue on November 13 last year when the gunmen stormed in and opened fire and also detonated suicide bombs as part of a wider assault that left 130 dead across Paris.
Jesse Hughes later told that the Bataclan stuff must have been involved in the attacks. He apologized, but repeated the claims in a later interview.
Bataclan co-director Jules Frutos tells AFP: “They came, I threw them out – there are things you can’t forgive. He makes these incredibly false declarations every two months. It is madness, accusing our security of being complicit with the terrorists. Enough. Zero. This has to stop.
