Le Bataclan have issued their first statement in the aftermath of the recent Paris attack, which took place last Friday (13th November).
The Parisian theatre saw the worst of the attacks on Friday night, with at least 80 concert-goers killed during a sold out Eagles of Death Metal concert.
Via the venue’s Facebook and Twitter pages, representatives posted a statement stating (via translation):
“Dear friends, No words is enough to express the magnitude of our grief. Our thoughts are with the victims, the injured and their families. Many of you have wanted to gather in remembrance at the Bataclan. Unfortunately, the authorities still need to work at the site. We will keep you informed as soon as it is possible for you to gather in the front room. We thank you for your support which affects us deeply.”
Eagles of Death Metal escaped the venue unharmed, and are expected to return to the United States in the coming days. They have yet to give a further statement regarding the attacks.
