The Bataclan hall in Paris has announced a slate of shows this fall marking a one-year anniversary of the terror siege that claimed the lives of dozens of concertgoers.

The music venue's Facebook page Wednesday gave no specific date for the official reopening, but said a lineup will include British rocker Pete Doherty on Nov. 16, Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour on Nov. 18, the American group Nada Surf on Dec. 2 and French rappers MZ on Dec. 3.

The Bataclan's management said the theater is still being rehabbed following last November's attack, but that they want to preserve its "warmth and friendliness."

Eighty-nine people were slaughtered by ISIS-linked terrorists who stormed the popular hall while the American rock group Eagles of Death Metal played. Another 41 people were killed in coordinated attacks elsewhere in the French capital, including in restaurants and outside of a soccer stadium.
