Sting to reopen Paris's Bataclan before attack anniversary

British singer Sting is to reopen the Bataclan music venue in Paris the day before the first anniversary of the attack that killed 90 concertgoers.

The former Police frontman will perform there on Saturday 12 November.

He said he wanted to "remember and honour those who lost their lives" and "to celebrate the life and the music that this historic theatre represents".

The venue has been shut since Islamist gunmen stormed a gig by US rock band Eagles of Death Metal last November.

Three heavily armed gunmen wearing suicide vests were part of co-ordinated attacks around Paris on 13 November that killed 130 people.

Sting said all revenue from his show would be donated to Life For Paris and 13 Novembre: Fraternite Verite.
