Clubs in Paris will reopen this weekend after Friday’s horrific terrorist attacks forced venues across the city to close, RA reports.
“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 reopen this weekend with additional security forces in place.
The decision follows the unanimous cancellation of events across the city in the wake of Friday’s attacks. The Red Bull Music Academy announced via Twitter that all programming in Paris will be cancelled until at least Thursday, November 19th. Concert mega-promoter, Live Nation, has also announced it will be tightening security globally in response.
