Sting set for first Bataclan show on Paris attacks anniversary

FRANCE 24's Louise Dupont sat down with British rock star Sting ahead of his headline concert marking the Bataclan venue’s reopening, exactly one year on from the deadly Paris attacks. The concert is to honour the victims, and all proceeds will go to charities caring for victims of the Nov 13, 2015 attacks.


Sting rose to fame as part of British band The Police and his solo career matched this success. Ahead of the sold-out gig, he spoke to FRANCE 24 about his 12th solo album, "57th & 9th".
