The Bataclan in Happier Times (Featuring Jeff Buckley)
by

The Bataclan will now be forever known as the focal point of the worst terrorist attack in French history. 

Prior to tonight, however, The Bataclan was a world renowned concert venue. Although it is a small venue holding approximately 800 people, it has long attracted the creme de la creme of musicians.

Now I’ve never been to The Bataclan, but I do have a sense of the atmosphere as demonstrated by the late Jeff Buckley who performed there in February 1995. This concert has been bootlegged ever since and for good reason. 

Have a listen to Buckley’s rendition of Edith Piaf’s “Je n’en connais pas la fin”. After Buckley sings in French, the audience erupts into applause so loud you would think there were 80,000 people in attendance instead of 800. 

While The Bataclan must be remembered for the evil that took place there tonight, it must also be remembered as a place of joy.
