The Tabernacle To Re-Open For Trey Anastasio Show

On Friday night a concert held at The Tabernacle in Atlanta was cut short when a fire official noticed the floor at the 100-year-old venue was buckling. The Tabernacle was evacuated and temporarily closed while engineers inspected the room. Venue officials have just shared the news that The Tabernacle's concert schedule will resume this Friday for the sold-out Trey Anastasio show after city officials determined there was no structural failure.

Ms. Lauryn Hill was supposed to perform at the venue on Thursday - that concert has been moved to Monday, February 17 due to "inclement weather." Here's the full statement about the situation from The Tabernacle's Facebook Page:

We can't say thank you enough for all the support and love we have received from the Tabernacle community. It is always disappointing having to postpone or cancel any show, but the safety of our concert goers, performers and crew members is our main priority.

City officials have inspected the venue and determined there was no structural failure of the floor system. Our subsequent investigation of the building shows areas that require additional attention to insure the ongoing integrity of the building for many years to come. We are working to prepare the venue for our upcoming shows this weekend. However, due to inclement weather the Lauryn Hill concert originally scheduled for Thursday, February 13th has been moved to Monday, February 17th. Tickets for the original February 13th date will be honored.

The concert schedule resumes Friday, February 14th for the Sold Out Trey Anastasio Band show.
