Text size Aa Aa

Renovation work has begun on the Paris music venue where 89 people were shot dead in last year’s terrorist attacks.

The Bataclan says it plans to reopen the venue in the autumn but no exact date has yet been set.

However, it has announced the first acts to perform from November 16, which will be just three days after the first anniversary of the massacre.

The British rocker Pete Doherty is the first on the list, followed by Senagalese singer Youssou N’Dour, the American group Nada Surf and the French band MZ.

The Bataclan has been closed since three terrorists opened fire on a crowd of 1500 people during a concert by the US band Eagles of Death Metal.

It was part of a series of deadly attacks on the night of November the 13th last year which claimed the lives of 130 victims.
