Just over a fortnight before the anniversary of a horrific terror attack that left 90 concertgoers dead, Paris’ Bataclan concert hall has finally unveiled its vibrant new façade.
The facelift is part of Bataclan’s efforts to get back to just being a concert hall.
In a move that could very well be taken as “defiance”, Pete Doherty is scheduled to kick off proceedings with a gig on November 16. A regular cavalcade of stellar acts is set to take to the stage in the weeks after, including Meshuggah, Nada Surf, and The Flaming Lips.
Aussie metalcore juggernauts Parkway Drive will even be on deck in early April.
“It’s not the building itself which is tragic.”
