Almost three months to the day after 89 people were shot dead at their concert at the Bataclan theatre in Paris on November 13th 2015, the US rockers will take to the stage in Oslo.
The band will perform a sold-out February 14th show at Sentrum Scene, which has a capacity of 1,750.
The Eagles of Death Metal concert was originally scheduled to take place on November 26th but was cancelled along with the band’s remaining European tour dates following the terrorist attack.
They are also due to play in several other European cities including Rome, Vienna and Madrid and will return to the French capital on February 16th to perform at the Olympia theatre.
The band's frontman Jesse Hughes, who is an outspoken Christian and pro-gun campaigner, has said it is important to him to continue the group's "mission to bring rock'n'roll to the world".
"I was there when it went silent for a minute. Our friends went there to see rock’n’roll and died. I want to go back there and live," he said in an interview with Vice magazine
, published just after the shootings at the Bataclan.
