British musician Sting has been lined up to perform at the Bataclan concert hall almost a year to the day since terror attacks in which 90 people died.
The Police frontman will be performing at the historic hall at a special memorial concert for those who died in the attack.
Islamic militants opened fire on a crowd of music lovers at an Eagles of Death Metal concert on November 13.
The terrifying shooting was one of a series of attacks coordinated to take place at the same time across Paris.
In total, 130 people lost their lives and a further 349 were injured.
Sting, 65, said he was honoured to have been invited to perform on the anniversary.
He said: “In reopening the Bataclan, we have two important tasks to reconcile.
“First, to remember and honour those who lost their lives in the attack a year ago, and second, to celebrate the life and the music that this historic theatre represents.”
He said he hoped to respect the memory of those who lost their lives as well as to celebrate their life affirming spirit.
In a statement, he added: “We shall not forget them.”
Money raised through the concert will go to the Life For Paris and 13Onze15 organisations which work to support the victims of the attacks along with their families.
The Bataclan concert hall has now been refurbished, including having an exterior revamp.
As well as the Sting concert, the venue is also due to host performances from the Libertine frontman Pete Doherty and Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour later this month.
The attacks last November brought death and terror across Paris. Three separate teams of extremists targeted the Stade de France football stadium, as well as bars and cafes, and the concert hall.
The first explosion happened at the Stade de France, and it quickly became apparent that it was not an isolated attack.
One of the terrorists blew himself up, as well as an innocent passer-by when he set off a suicide belt outside the stadium. It is understood he was trying to get in to the sports venue, but his explosives were detected outside during routine security checks.
Just five minutes later, terrorists opened fire in the exclusive 10th district before further attacks took place in the 11th district. Finally, terrorists stormed into the Bataclan and opened fire on the terrified crowd.
