Man plays 'Imagine' outside Bataclan theatre in moving Paris tribute.

“Imagine all the people, living life in peace … ”

As Parisians settle in for the night after waking up to the horrors that plagued their city the night before, one man has returned to the Bataclan theatre to play Imagine by John Lennon in a moving tribute to the fallen victims.

A crowd is shown gathered around the unnamed man at the scene where the bloodiest violence occurred. Eighty people were reportedly killed inside the theatre after hundreds were taken hostage during a concert on Friday night.

A witness says the man biked to the Bataclan with his wheeled piano in tow (complete with a peace sign), sat down and began playing.

The man’s humbling act is just one of the many tributes found at the sites of violence. The Bataclan, among others, has become a place of memorial, with citizens leaving flowers, candles and messages for the victims.
