The U.S. rock band Eagles of Death Metal has announced dates for a rescheduled European tour, including a return to Paris.

The band was performing at the Bataclan in Paris on Nov. 13 when 130 people were killed in the city. The band will play at the Olympia Theatre in Paris on Feb. 16, 2016.

Concertgoers who attended the Bataclan show will earn free tickets to the upcoming Paris show.

Jesse Hughes, Eagles of Death Metal's frontman and co-founder, says not returning to finish the band's set was never an option.

Says Hughes: "We look forward to coming back in February and continuing our mission to bring rock `n' roll to the world."

The band's The Nos Amis Tour starts Feb. 13, 2016, in Stockholm.
