After the terror attacks in Le Bataclan, Paris, the band Eagles of Death Metal had a stunning break before their show must go on. Although the band delayed its Budapest concert to a later date, but on 20 February 2016 they performed in the Hungarian capital’s Akvárium music club, proving that rock ‘n roll really is immortal.
The concert, in downtown Budapest, was organized with unprecedented security measures in place for the event. Police looked through every single visitor and on the streets also many of patrols were overseeing. In spite of these precautionary safety measures, more than a thousand fans and visitors attended the concert. Although the Le Bataclan tragedy has become part of the history of the band, at the concert everybody seemed to have come for the music and not for some “historical movement”.
The Eagles of Death Metal did not want to make a memorial of concert, they just played their songs for an hour in the natural rocky way. When Jesse Hughes, the frontman, spoke up, the audience listened to him in deep silence. Jesse said: “as you know we had to get through many difficulties in the last time and it means a lot for us, that number you are here!” After a one minute complete silence the band proved that, nothing can stop Rolling the Rock.
