Sting pays 'Fifty Thousand' tribute to 2016's late musicians while reopening Bataclan theatre

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 13 (ANI): English singer-songwriter Sting recently opened a Paris theatre that brutally witnessed the killing of 90 people when terrorists stormed in on November 13 last year.

A day shy of the anniversary of the Paris terror attacks, the 65-year-old singer reopened Paris' 'Bataclan' theatre with a minute of silence for the victims and dedicated the song '50,000' to David Bowie, Prince and other musicians the world lost in 2016, reports Hollywood Reporter.

"We've got two important things to do tonight," the British rocker said in French, "First, to remember and honor those who lost their lives in the attacks a year ago and to celebrate the life and the music of this historic venue."

He then called for the minute of silence and said, "We shall not forget them," before launching into his 1988's 'Fragile.'

"Nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could," he sang.

The 'Shape Of My Heart' crooner listed the names of those musicians lost his year.

"David Bowie, Prince, Glenn Frey, Lemmy..." he said before the crowd shouted "Leonard Cohen!"

"And Leonard," he added, "This is for them."

This was immediately followed by "FIfty Thousand" from his new album '57th & 9th', dedicated to the late musicians.

Sting dedicated the last song, 'Empty Chair' to journalist Jim Foley, who was beheaded in August 2014 by the ISIS. He projected a photo of Foley behind the stage as he pulled out his acoustic guitar for an emotional rendition. (ANI)
