Le Bataclan is going to reopen one year after the Paris terror attacks.
The live music venue was one of several scenes in a coordinated terror attack against France on November 13th last year, which took 130 lives – 90 of those deaths happened at Le Bataclan during a concert by US band Eagles of Death Metal.
After being rebuilt to look exactly as it was prior to the tragic attacks last year, the venue will finally reopen its doors on November 16th on what is sure to be a poignant night.
Pete Doherty has been selected to the play the first two dates at the reopened venue, followed by Senegalese artist Youssou N'Dour on the 18th and 19th of November.
