Laurent Garnier Amongst First Performers For Le Bataclan Re-Opening
The first shows to take place at Parisian club Le Bataclan following last years devastating terrorist attacks have been announced.
On 16 November will kick off two dates with Pete Doherty, followed by Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour on the 18th and 19th. On 24 November, Laurent Garnier will headline an event hosted by A.K.A, the organization in charge of Nuits Sonores and Alias Production. Garnier will join a back to back set from Voiron & Gordon, as well as a live performance from Arnaud Rebotini.
Last year’s terrorist attacks during an Eagles of Death Metal show led to the deaths of nearly 90 people leading to the closure and refurbishment of the building. That being said, its completion has been described to “preserve its warmth and friendliness” and “maintain its spirit”.
