    An investigator works outside the Bataclan concert hall, Saturday, Nov. 14 in Paris. The owners of the concert hall said they plan to reopen in 2016

    The Bataclan concert hall's owners plan to reopen in 2016, according to local media, NBC News reported. 

    The Paris venue, where California band Eagles of Death Metal was playing at the time of the attack, will be internally rebuilt, managers told Le Figaro newspaper. Gunmen killed 89 people at the concert hall on the night of the Nov. 13 attacks. In all 130 people were killed, the majority at the Bataclan. 

    "The Bataclan should not be a mausoleum or a place of pilgrimage ... it's necessary to see the doors open again," one of the owners, Jules Frutos, said.
