Insane Clown Posse, more concerts leave the State Theatre due to construction
More concerts are leaving the State Theatre for other venues as construction delays continue to hamper the historic venue's capacity.
Insane Clown Posse (Oct. 17), Superjoint (Oct. 19) and Lords of Acid (Oct. 20) will all be taking their road shows to the Cuban Club in Tampa, the State announced Friday. All tickets for the old venue will be honored at the new one. An Oct. 18 concert by Between the Buried and Me has not yet moved, but that now seems like a decent possibility. Click here for details.
A Facebook post said the shows were moved "due to popular demand." But yesterday, State Theatre general manager Kendra Marolf said that construction and repairs were going slower than expected, putting part of the venue's balcony off-limits to fans, and forcing larger shows to move elsewhere.
Over the past week-plus, the delays have impacted concerts by Nothing More and Hollywood Undead, and forced next week's shows by Judah and the Lion and Zakk Sabbath to move to Jannus Live.
Tonight's concert by Hinder's Austin Winkler is still scheduled to take place at the State. Click here for details on that.
