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."

J'étais au Bataclan le 13/11/2015 pour voir EODM, j'ai été blessée par plusieurs balles. Je serai ce soir 12/11/2016 au Bataclan pour le concert de Sting. Très important pour moi & pour ma reconstruction. Police est le 1er concert que j'ai vu le 11 janvier 1982 au Bourget, France. Quel symbole pour moi. Merci de venir jouer pour nous.

thank you!
It can't be a better idea. Sting is the perfect man to honor the reopening of the Bataclan. I hope I will be able to find tickets to attend the concert with my two children. We must celebrate life and sing together in memory of the victims.

Le bon mec à la bonne place!
Merci, Sting de venir chanter et partager les émotions essentielles au Bataclan. Je crois malheureusement que je n'aurai pas le courage de venir t'écouter tant ma sensibilité est meurtrie. Bon concert à tous, morts et vivants, sweet vibrations . * ° .* ~~^~~ * °.

At all of 65 years old, with a remarkably full head of hair and a well-exercised body filling out a tight black T-shirt, British musician Sting is wholeheartedly embracing the process of being an ageing rock star. That is if ageing has anything to do with being reconciled with mortality, not being called "grandpa" and non-retirement plans. "I do the job of a 25-year-old, I'm fitter than most 25-year-olds..."
