Bataclan reopens for Sting in emotional night in Paris

“Almost a year to the day since 90 music lovers were gunned down by jihadists inside the Bataclan concert hall, the venue reopened on Saturday with the owners saying the show must go on.

Concert goers returned to the Bataclan music hall in Paris on Saturday night for the first time since last November’s Paris terror attacks.

The venue opened its doors for a concert by British rocker Sting, the first musician to take to the stage since Eagles of Death Metal, whose gig was targeted by jihadist gunmen, wearing suicide vests.
