The music venue where last year's Paris terror attacks occurred, the Bataclan, has reopened with a touching performance from Sting.

Eighty-nine people were killed during the attack, and Sting held a moment of silence out of respect for those lives lost. 

In a statement issued before the show, Sting said: “In reopening the Bataclan, we have two important tasks to reconcile. First, to remember and honour those who lost their lives in the attack a year ago, and second, to celebrate the life and the music that this historic theatre represents. In doing so, we hope to respect the memory as well as the life-affirming spirit of those who fell. We shall not forget them.”
