Watch Sting Play First Show At Reopened Bataclan

Sting reopened the Bataclan today, playing the first show at the Paris venue since last year’s devastating terrorist attack. Security at the event was heavy, as the AP reports, with concertgoers — including families of the victims, who were given free tickets — greeted by barricades, body searches, and armed police. Sting spoke to the audience in fluent French, asking for a moment of silence before opening the show with a performance of “Fragile,” the same song he opened his 9/11/01 show with. Watch below.
