The concert hall targeted in the Nov. 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 Wednesday 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 Nov. 16 and said other concerts would be announced shortly.

The Nov. 13 attacks that hit Paris began just north of the city at the Stade de France and ended with the siege of the Bataclan.
