The concert hall targeted in the November 13 Paris attacks is preparing to reopen and has scheduled a set of new concerts toward the end of the year.

The management of the Bataclan says renovation work has started on the storied venue, where 89 people were massacred that night.

In a press release, it said a precise opening date has yet to be set. 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 November 13 attacks that hit Paris began just north of the city at the Stade de France and ended with the siege of the Bataclan.
