Rocker Pete Doherty will honour the lives lost in the Bataclan theatre massacre in November (15) with a new song he plans to play the night he helps re-open the Paris venue.
The Libertines star, who was in the French capital on the night of the citywide terrorist attacks, will be the first artist scheduled to headline the theatre when owners open their doors again.
And he has just the song for the occasion after penning a track he plans to perform as a tribute to the 89 music fans who lost their lives when terrorists stormed the venue during an Eagles of Death Metal concert.
Pete tells the NME that Hell to Pay at the Gates of Heaven is "about the f**king Bataclan", adding, "It's about how we're under attack... I went down there (to Le Bataclan) and just sat outside with my guitar. Just to be there...
"(My girlfriend) Katia lost about five people she was at school with."
Doherty debuted the song during a solo tour of Europe and is currently considering recording it for his next solo album.
