First Avenue reopens

Posted on November 29, 2004 by D' MacKinnon

When I heard the news back in the beginning of November that First Avenue had shut it doors it broke my heart.
For a long time I have had a fascination with all things Purple Rain and it had been a secret ambition of mine to play at that venue. Those hopes seemed dashed by the news of their closure but today I read that First Avenue has miraculously reopened with new owners.
It seems that the former managers and landlords of the space purchased the venue back during the bankruptcy hearing and are working on bringing it back. Currently, it’s reopened but not fully booked.
So…the dream lives on. You just won’t see me traveling to Minneapolis in the winter if I can help it.
