Le Bataclan’s owners aim to re-open venue by the end of this year
While the 2015 Paris terror attacks are now a thing of the past, the legacy of those who courageously lost their lives will continue to live on. And so will Le Bataclan — the epicenter of the lethal shooting that left 89 people at an Eagles of Death Metal concert dead. The famed music venue has been closed ever since November 13, when three terrorists opened fire on a crowd of 1,500.
Le Bataclan has since stepped forward, announcing that the space will be renovated, with the goal of opening toward the end of the year. “We will do our best to accommodate to new shows before the end of 2016,” co-owners Jules Frutos and Olivier Poubelle explained.
The venue’s official opening date has not yet been cemented, but its owners, the Lagardère Group, are currently in touch with several design agencies to begin work as soon as possible.
