Sting Re-Opens The Bataclan In Paris

PARIS, France (VIP-NEWS) — The Bataclan concert hall in Paris has reopened with a performance by Sting, a year after Islamist militants killed 90 people at the venue.

The British singer told the audience, including survivors, that they had to honor the dead and celebrate life.

There was a minute`s silence for those killed in the French capital by jihadists from so-called Islamic State.

The coordinated attacks in Paris in 2015 left 130 people dead.

The Bataclan has been renovated entirely since the attack.

Sting will donate the proceeds from the show, which took place on the eve of the first anniversary of the attacks, to two survivors` charities.
