And The Bands Played On: Music Box Re-Opens as Fonda Theatre
It's been a brief period of uncertainty and quiet over at the Music Box, after an abrupt shut-down in January that found the current operators evicted. Now comes word that the venue is born again as The Fonda Theatre, and Goldenvoice will be its exclusive promoter and operator.
"We are very excited to announce that The Fonda Theatre is re-open!" declared Goldenvoice Tuesday on Facebook. They're listing shows on the Goldenvoice site under The Fonda Theatre, too.
Downtown Lobby posted additional details about when the venue will officially open their doors:
The first show on the schedule to take place at The Fonda Theatre will take place this weekend on Saturday, March 17th with Feed Me. All other shows on the schedule will go on as planned.
