Following the devastating terrorist attacks in France, Rosanne Cash has promised to return to Paris as soon as possible.
In an interview with The New York Times, Cash said she wants to play the Bataclan, the Paris venue where terrorists attacked and held concertgoers hostage during an Eagles of Death Metal concert on Nov. 14. Nearly 100 music fans died inside the venue.
Cash says she feels a strong connection to the Bataclan from her performance at the venue in 1990, during her Interiors tour.
“As soon as this happened, I called my manager and said, ‘We have to book the Bataclan this year,'” said Cash. “It was just one of those nights that you look for as performer, when you’re totally connected to the audience.”
In the wake of these jarring attacks, many musicians have canceled their current and upcoming European tours due to fears of future attacks. Brantley Gilbert halted his European Black Out tour, which was in progress when the attacks occurred. Many other country artists, including Kacey Musgraves, have decided to continue with their scheduled overseas dates.
The Cadillac Three confirmed they are continuing with their European tour, which is set to kick off in January. “Terrorists want people to hide,” the band told Rolling Stone Country. “They want people to cancel shows. And we’re not gonna do that.”
