Another iconic venue in NYC is shutting down. The Highline Ballroom simply introduced it’s being compelled to close down after the owner determined to not renew the lease.
After 12 years of music and reminiscences, Highline Ballroom will shut. At least, for now. The crew totally plans on reopening its doorways at a brand new location within the Chelsea/Meatpacking District.
“Unfortunately after 12 years our landlord has decided not to renew Highline Ballroom’s lease,” the venue shares in a press release. “For over a year we were led to believe that a renewal was imminent, however it is now clear that the landlord has other plans for the building.”
Over the years, Highline Ballroom has hosted main acts together with Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, The Killers, Rihanna, The Black Keys, Artic Monkeys, Lou Reed and The Roots, simply to call a number of.
Stay tuned for the ultimate present date and programming. Announcement coming quickly.
