” We would like to express here our most sincere regrets with regard to the victims. “It is visibly disappointed that the Fatals Picards published a message on their Facebook page, co-signed with Marcel and his orchestra, this Monday, May 9. They report having received testimonies from women, revealing inappropriate behavior and even sexual assault that allegedly took place during the concert they gave with Marcel and his orchestra last Saturday at the Zénith de Lille.
“Attitudes from another age”
More than 4,200 people lined up to hear the two bands perform their iconic songs together. If the atmosphere was apparently festive and good-natured, in the dark of the pit, some would have indulged in ” very inappropriate gestures, remarks almost as much, sexual assaults, attitudes from another age. »
In the comments, in response to this publication, women confirm the testimony of the Fatals: “ They took advantage of the crowd to rub each other, grab their breasts, insult the girls who came on stage (especially their looks), get called a whore because you don’t want to give them the front row seat… quote that what I experienced/heard… “. Others speak of hands on buttocks and the desire to oust women from the front row. Some comments also highlight the support of some men: “ We also found very nice protectors who defended us at the cost of their backs.. But the vast majority of fans are mostly angry and surprised: “ How sad that such actions can take place in these magnificent moments of sharing that are your concerts! These mindless morons have never listened to your texts! »
The Fatals Picards have, in addition to the message, posted a video with the singer of Marcel, who also expresses his dismay. They warned that they will everything in (their) power to remove them from the map of (their) concerts. »
The Zenith condemns these acts, and confirms having received three messages from young women, a posteriori. ” It’s a shame because at each concert, if something happens, there is what it takes to help. Above all, do not hesitate to alert. “A security team of nearly 30 people was deployed (rescuers, officers and nursing services) and, according to them, nothing was brought to their attention on the evening of the concert.
