Almost exactly one year ago, a devastating terror attack hit Paris concert venue, The Bataclan, where 89 people were killed. This weekend, the hall reopened its doors and Sting was tapped as the first performer in the space. 

According to the AP, the 1,000 tickets for the show sold out quickly, and a portion of the tickets were given to the families of the victims from last year's attacks. 

Before starting, Sting asked the crowd to observe a moment of silence. “We will not forget them,” the singer told the audience. “Tonight we have two tasks to settle. First, to remember and honor those who lost their life in the attacks. Then, to celebrate life and music.” He then launched into "Fragile," the same first song he started his 9/11 show with.
