Paris, France (WMC) -

The Eagles of Death Metal made their return to Paris.

It was the rock band’s first time on stage since their concert at the Bataclan Theater was attacked by Islamic extremists in November.

89 people were killed during their show.

It was one of a series of attacks across Paris that left 130 people dead.

Frontman Jesse Hughes told a French TV show that he is still struggling to come to terms with what happened.

“I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them,” Hughes said. “There were some real angels, real wonderful people in that show that aren't alive today and I really wish they were.”

Survivors of the Bataclan Theater attack were given free tickets to the show and psychologists were on site to provide emotional support.
