Bataclan Will Reopen One Year After Terror Attack, Peter Doherty Among First Performers

Paris’ Bataclan became the epicenter of an international tragedy last year when terrorists stormed the venue during an Eagles Of Death Metal concert. 89 people were killed, and the venue has remained closed ever since that devastating night. The concert hall will reopen in November, and Peter Doherty of the Libertines is slated to perform on 11/16. According to Variety, the Bataclan also scheduled performances by Youssou N’Dour And The Super Etoile De Dakar (11/18), Nada Surf (12/2) and MZ (12/3).

The Bataclan reports that though they’ve been renovating the famous concert hall, its layout won’t change. The venue’s management told Variety the following:

We wish to preserve the warmth and conviviality, maintain the popular and festive spirit which has always defined [The Bataclan].
