It's insane to think that November 13th will mark five years since the inconceivable terror attacks at the Bataclan venue in Paris, France, during an Eagles of Death Metal show. 89 lives were lost in that senseless attack. In remembrance of that day, Queens of the Stone Age have announced a special concert event to benefit those impacted by the terror attack.
Nick Alexander was the band merch manager killed during the attack, while he was trying to help people escape. The trust “continues Nick’s music-loving legacy by providing instruments and music equipment for disadvantaged communities across the UK”.
Arthur Denouveaux, President of Life for Paris, told NME “Due to the current lockdown, victims and their families won’t be able to stand together in Paris during commemorations this year,” said . “This show premiering on November 13 means our community will be together sharing the same music at the same time. This is the best testimony to the importance of the arts in challenging times.”
The stream will be free to view on the band's YouTube page, with donations encouraged.
