In August of 2017, New York’s Webster Hall shut down to allow its new owners to begin renovations. The venue, built in 1868, was sold to AEG Presents and Brooklyn Sports/Entertainment. The venue’s director of operations, Gerard McNamee, wrote in a statement, “[Webster Hall] will be closed for an undisclosed period of time for demo, reno, and transition to corporate ownership under Barclays/AEG/Bowery Presents.”
Now, it appears Webster Hall will reopen soon. On New Year’s Eve, Webster Hall posted on a social media a video captioned “see ya in 2019!”
Specifics right now are semi-unclear. The last concert at Webster Hall prior to closing was Action Bronson on August 10, 2017.
