Sting in concert
POSSIBLY tempting fate although security at the venue is likely to be incredibly tight, singer and bass player Sting has announced that he will perform at the re-opening of the Bataclan club in Paris on November 12, just one day short of the first anniversary of the massacre which saw 89 of the audience for the Eagles of Death Metal being killed,
Announcing that tickets for the show will go on sale on Tuesday November 8, the former front man with the Police who previously performed at the Bataclan in 1979 said that all monies raised from the gig would be shared between two organisations Life For Paris and 13 Novembre: Fraternite Verite.
It appears that he has offered his services in order to remember and honour those who were killed and to celebrate life and music.
Following the opening night with Sting, other acts, including Pete Doherty, Youssou N’Dour and Marianne Faithful are lined up to appear at the club later in November.
