I'm very torn up about today's events in Paris, France. Just over two months ago I spent the most beautiful week in Paris with my wife & kids. I've played the Bataclan club at least twice, and I've even had the great pleasure of opening for AC/DC at the Stade Du France. I have great love for France, and Paris in particular.
I can't imagine how the family & friends of the Eagles of Death Metal, both the band and crew, are feeling tonight. My heart goes out to them because I can relate to them for sure. It's hard enough being on the road & away from family in normal circumstances. This could have been me & my family, so I know this has got to be killing them. And my heart is completely breaking for our friends & fans in Paris.
Our Paris audiences have always been among the most exciting & energetic of any in all the world. I've been lucky to make a few friends in Paris & France and I trust that you are are well. I can only hope the same for our fans. They have all been so caring and thoughtful. I can't imagine them just going to a concert expecting to have a good time, and then have something like this happen.
I'm plenty hateful tonight as well, but I'm trying to put that aside for another time. Tonight i want to hope the best for all the people affected by the terrorist actions of a few. Tonight my heart is with those affected by today's terrible events in Paris.
Ignition was released on this day in 1992!
It seems there is a festival in Denmark in September called the ‘Offspring Festival’. Please be aware that we have no involvement with this event and will NOT be performing at it. We hope to see everyone in Denmark in 2016. - The Offspring
