NEWS: First Avenue Reschedules End-of-Year Shows

Graphic: New Year’s Eve Cancellation Notice.

With COVID-19 numbers rising steeply in the United States, performing arts organizations everywhere are taking stock of how to end the year. In a spirit of caution, First Avenue in Minneapolis has rescheduled several end-of-year concerts:

The Suburbs @ Palace Theatre (New Date: Saturday, February 12, 2022)

The Suburbs show at the Palace Theatre originally scheduled for December 31 is now rescheduled to February 12.

From First Avenue:

The Suburbs helped us open back up for our first show back in the 7th St Entry after being closed for much of 2020. Despite rescheduling their NYE show, there is at least something to look forward to as the show has a new date, February 12. Tickets are on sale now – we’ll see you there!

Dessa @ First Avenue (New Date: Sunday, February 13, 2022)

Dessa with Mayyadda at First Avenue on this Thursday, December 30 is rescheduled to February 13, 2022.

From First Avenue:

Dessa has hit many milestones: performing at festivals, with the Minnesota Orchestra, and having top-200 entries on the Billboard charts. She contributed to the #1 album The Hamilton Mixtape, with her track “Congratulations” notching over 16 million streams. She’s been published by The New York Times and National Geographic Traveler, broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio, and hosted a TED Talk about her science experiment on how to fall out of love. Dessa’s sold out show with Mayyadda has been rescheduled to February 13.

BLOOD $MOKE BODY @ 7th St Entry (New Date: Thursday, February 17, 2022)

BLOOD $MOKE BODY with 26 Bats! and Ness Nite in the 7th St Entry this Thursday, December 30 has been rescheduled to February 17, 2022.

From First Avenue:

Formerly known as ‘Nazeem & Spencer Joles’, BLOOD $MOKE BODY intended to take shape with a ‘Rage Against the Machine’ influence, but eventually found themselves in Hip-Hop. As their experiences, tastes, and sound developed, the duo rebranded under a new name that serves as a symbolic representation of their lives, careers, and that speaks to the background and identities of all cultures. The BLOOD $MOKE BODY show with 26! Bats and Ness Nite in the 7th St Entry has been rescheduled to February 17. Tickets are on sale now.
