UPDATE (11/18/15, 11:25 a.m. ET): Eagles Of Death Metal issued an official statement on Wednesday (Nov. 18) about the attacks and their aftermath via Facebook. They've suspended all upcoming shows "until further notice." Read the statement below. Original story follows.
Among other sites around the city, the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris targeted a concert at Le Bataclan, a music venue, where American band Eagles Of Death Metal were performing. All members of the band escaped unharmed, though 89 people died at the venue, including the band's merchandise manager, Nick Alexander.
On Tuesday (Nov. 17), the band's cover of Duran Duran's "Save A Prayer" held steady at No. 96 on the chart. The campaign organizers posted a Facebook update on Tuesday morning highlighting the progress. "Wow, what an amazing last few hours we've had," the post reads. "We are still moving upwards on all of the charts which is wonderful to see plus the track leapt 52 (yes FIFTY TWO) places on the main official chart overnight!...we CAN do this and it IS working!
As the post points out, 100 digital streams are equal to one play on the charts.
The effort helps out Eagles Of Death Metal after the tragedy, but it's also helping the French relief efforts, as Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon said the band will donate all proceeds from the sale of the cover.
The band also posted about it on its official Facebook page on Monday.
