Eagles of Death Metal Tour Dates 2017

Eagles of Death Metal is an American rock lineup from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998 by Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Despite their ensemble name, Eagles of Death Metal are not a death metal band. Hughes stated that a friend was introducing Josh Homme to the death metal genre. When he played a song by the Polish group Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as “The Eagles of Death Metal”. After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would style of music like. In a 2003 interview Homme described the style of music of the lineup as a combination of “bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals.” Jesse Hughes is known and loved by fans for his enthusiastic and charismatic interaction with audiences at live concerts.
