The Disco Biscuits Announce New Year’s Run 2019 To Close PlayStation Theater
The Disco Biscuits are bringing their New Year’s Run back to New York City. The band will end 2019 by performing at the PlayStation Theater December 27 – 28 and 30 – 31. The concerts will be the final shows held at the venue, which opened in 2005 and has undergone a few name changes since.
“We’ve got so much to tell you guys in the next couple of weeks, wanted to start with a classic. A New Year. A new beginning. A new life,” said keyboardist Aron Magner in a statement. “Couldn’t think of a better way to look towards the future than by saying goodbye to the past. Our 40th show at a venue that, just like all of us, has changed so many times through the years. We’ve shared so many incredible memories as a community there, here’s to one last hurrah before the venue closes for good. The Biscuits are coming home!”
Last year, the livetronica quartet brought 2018 to a close in their hometown of Philadelphia. Previous New Year’s Runs dating back to 2011, with the exception of 2016, were held in New York City. The announcement comes a week after the band issued a note penned by guitarist Jon Gutwillig indicating the Biscuits aimed to put the focus back on the group after years of light touring.
The concert on Friday, December 27 has a start time at 9 p.m., while the other three shows are late night affairs. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 23 at 10 a.m. ET via AXS.com.
