Marianne Faithfull pays homage to Paris victims at Bataclan

British singer and 60s icon Marianne Faithfull paid homage to the victims of last year’s Paris attacks in a concert at the Bataclan, singing a song she wrote about the tragedy. “For me, this is an important concert, there are lots of things which I must mourn… through music and through words,” Faithfull, 69, clad all in black and supporting herself with a cane, told the crowd. The former wildchild then launched into “They Come at Night”, which she wrote in her Paris apartment the day after the attacks, the lyrics denouncing those who wish to kill music and partying.
