Paris Attack: France Culture Ministry Plans Subsidy For Gaul’s Performance Halls

France’s Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin is preparing to launch a multi-million fund to support performance halls hosting concerts and other live events in Gaul.

In a radio interview, Pellerin said the amount of the fund will be determined in the next 48 hours. The subsidy will serve a dual purpose: ensure immediate and adequate security measures, and the livelihood of small performance halls that are not insured against cancellations and risk struggling financially.

Pellerin said the beefed up security measures will likely include more police and/or military presence in front of places too “exposed” starting this week.

A flurry of concerts – US, Prince, Foo Fighters, Cold Play and Marylin Manson — were cancelled across France and Europe on the heels of the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks which killed 129 people in Paris, including 89 at the Bataclan concert hall where Eagles of Death Metal was performing. Some live events are nevertheless on track to take place this week at Bercy and the Zenith.

Pellerin said the fund will pull its resources from the National Centre for Entertainment as well as the culture ministry and hypothetically the orgs collecting right-holders’ royalties, per the AFP.
