Eagles of Death Metal, an American blues rock band, was scheduled to perform at the venue prior to the attack. Images on social media show the band and a tightly packed crowd just moments before terrorists stormed into the building and began firing. The venue holds about 1,500 people and was sold out at the time of the attack, according to NBC News.
