Basically, Bono went out of his way to help the members of EODM, offering them their private plane, buying them new phones because their own phones had been left in the venue.

Could the terrorists have been aware of the cover art of Eagles of Death Metal’s last album ‘Zipper Down’? This has to put any jihadist in full rage mode… But wait until mid December, when Peaches has a gig there.
For a time, it was unclear if the band members were among the 100 hostages taken inside the theater, but Eagles of Death Metal are apparently safe as they updated their Facebook page in the middle of the afternoon Pacific Time:
