Florence and The Machine covers Beatles, Eagles of Death Metal for Paris attacks, victims
Florence and the Machine paid tribute to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks with two stirring covers during the band’s show this week in the City of Light. Florence Welch sang the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” and Eagles of Death Metal’s “I Love You All the Time” during the Paris stop on the band’s How Big How Blue How Beautiful tour.
Eagles of Death Metal previously announced that, in the wake of November’s terror attacks in Paris, it would donate all publishing income from its song “I Love You All the Time” to charity and encouraged bands to cover the tune. Florence and the Machine is one of the groups that recorded the track for EDOM’s Play It Forward campaign, along with Pearl Jam, Imagine Dragons, Savages, Jimmy Eat World, and others.

Earlier this month, U2 also performed in Paris. Bono introduced Eagles of Death Metal on stage to perform “I Love You All the Time” and Patti Smith’s “People Have the Power.” “These are our brothers, our fellow troubadours,” Bono said. “They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago, and we would like to offer them ours tonight.”
