Sting Performs “Desert Rose” @ the Bataclan’s Reopening

Jules Frutos, who has co-run the venue for the last 12 years, said: “We had to go on after such horror and not leave a mausoleum, a tomb.”

Frutos said he rang Sting himself to ask him to play after the British singer told a journalist he was keen to help, having last appeared at the Bataclan with The Police in 1979.

Sting, 65, said he wanted to “celebrate the life and the music that this historic theatre represents”.

He promised to donate proceeds to two charities set up to help survivors.
