The concert hall was shut down on 13 November (15) after gunmen stormed the building and opened fire during an Eagles of Death Metal gig.

Rocker Pete Doherty and singer Youssou N'Dour will be among the first acts to perform at Paris' Bataclan venue when it reopens later this year (16). The attacks left 130 people dead and scores injured.

But it detailed several new concerts, including a show by British indie rocker Pete Doherty on November 16 and said other concerts would be announced shortly.

The Bataclan reports that though they've been renovating the famous concert hall, its layout won't change.

Bataclan management says renovation work has started on the storied venue. They consist of the rehabilitation of all the infrastructure and facilities. "We're going to try and preserve its warmth and friendliness".

The exact date of Le Bataclan's reopening has not been confirmed, but stay tuned for that update once Le Bataclan releases that info. Nada Surf will play a show there on 2nd December, and many more bookings will be announced over the next few days. It later had to face accusations from Eagles Of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes, who suggested that some of the venue's security guards may have been in on the attacks.
