Pictures surface from deadly Paris concert, while music industry mourns

Pictures from the rock concert taking place inside the Bataclan concert hall the night of the deadly Paris attacks have surfaced online, showing an energetic, excited crowd taking in the show about 15 minutes before gunmen stormed the venue.

About 1,500 people were at the concert hall Friday evening for a show by the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal. It was the scene of the Paris attacks’ worst carnage, where hostages were held and 89 people were killed. One witness told Radio France that the attackers came into the venue and started shooting into the crowd.
