The line for Jay-Z this evening
EVG reader Doug shared these photo this evening a little after 7 ... showing the line for the grand reopening of Webster Hall with Jay-Z.
The venue is on 11th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue... the line forms back to Third Avenue and north to 12th Street...
... running alongside Westside Market...
As the top photo shows, 11th Street is also closed to through traffic. (Not sure where the line forms for people seeing "Avengers: Endgame" at the Loews Village 7.)
Webster Hall reopens tonight after nearly 18 months of renovations. Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment and The Bowery Presents bought the landmarked building from the Ballinger family for $35 million in a deal announced in the spring of 2017.
Most of the first shows at the venue in the coming week, including Rosalía, Patti Smith, Sharen Van Etten, TroyBoi and Vampire Weekend, are sold out.
