Eagles of Death Metal still cannot comprehend what happened the night their gig was stormed by terrorists.
Singer Jesse Hughes, 43, admits it was "chaos" when gunmen barged into their show in Paris last November, resulting in 89 people losing their lives - and he still finds it tough to talk about.
He said: "I can't describe it. I saw fear manifest itself like a physical thing, like a blanket, and it was chaos."
The group took to the stage in the French capital on Tuesday night (16.02.16) at the Olympia Theatre, the first time since their gig at the Bataclan theatre was attacked by terrorists.
The US rock group insist they will not be "silenced" by mindless criminals who intend to kill innocent people and their commitment to last night's concert showed that same sentiment.
Josh told the latest issue of Kerrang! magazine: "Whatever the goal was to injure innocent people, it didn't work. It did the opposite. It united people that were un-united previously, and gave a common cause that couldn't be silenced. How could you silence it?"
