In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the music industry has taken a massive financial hit. Most concerts and festivals have been canceled indefinitely, severely affecting the survival of small venues.
The legendary Troubadour venue in Los Angeles, CA, is currently on life support. The event space does not think it will survive with the new smaller capacity rules for future events.
Troubador general manager Christine Karayan:
"That means the middle to the end of next year to potentially open, and maybe a 25% cap [on attendance limitations]," she told the LA Times. "I can’t foresee being able to ride this out like that.”
The future is uncertain for the historical venue. We hope we can make a collective effort to save this special place. The Troubadour is known for hosting Elton John's debut performance in 1970 and many more.
