“Nothing and no one will stop Paris from dancing.”
“Nothing and no one will stop Paris from dancing,” a joint statement issued by the city’s club owners reads. “Music, dancing, sharing, meeting, social bonds [and] diversity are values that we carry and that these terrorists have targeted for destruction.”
According to the statement A La Folie Paris, Badaboum, Batofar, Concrete, Djoon, Faust, Glazart, Gibus, Java, La Machine Du Moulin Rouge, Le Queen, Rex Club, Social Club, Showcase, Virgo, Wanderlust, YoYo – Palais de Tokyo and Zig Zag will all reopen before the weekend with additional security measures in place.
The decision follows the cancellation of events across the city in the wake of Friday’s attacks, including programming for the Red Bull Music Academy. Concert giant Live Nation has also announced it will be tightening security globally in response.
