The Bataclan has announced its first gigs since the devastating act of terrorism that left 90 people dead in November. 

The Bataclan was just one of the locations included the extremist attack on November 13th last year – altogether, there was 130 fatalities across Paris. The popular and widely-adored theatre has been closed ever since. 

A precise opening date has yet to be set wile reconstruction is underway, but the Bataclan has already booked and announced gigs by Pete Doherty and Youssou N’Dour in November, and Nada Surf and MZ in December. 

They announced the news on their Twitter account, @le_bataclan:

The Eagles of Death Metal, who were playing at the time of the attack, have openly spoken about wanting to play a show at the Bataclan again, despite the tragic ordeal. 

Theatre management said this about reopening their doors:

“We want to preserve the [Bataclan’s] warmth and friendliness and maintain its popular, festive spirit.”
