Live Nation to replace Bowery Presents as Wellmont Theater booker

Wellmont Theatre in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

We recently got the upsetting news that Hoboken, NJ venue Maxwell’s is closing (check out the venue’s final shows) and the more positive news that another NJ venue, Starland Ballroom is re-opening after damages from Hurricane Sandy.

Now there’s even more going on in the NJ venue world. It’s just been announced that after MGMT‘s sold-out Wellmont Theatre show, Bowery Presents will no longer be booking the Montclair venue. According to an article on Baristanet and confirmed by us, Live Nation (who book NYC shows at Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theatre, and more) will now be booking the venue:

Led by Live Nations Club and Theatre Team overseen by Sean Striegel and Jason Stone, Live Nation will be actively looking to present artists. Booked by the New York Team of Sean Striegel, Jason Stone, Jay Belin and Christian McKnight, Live Nation plans to continue to expand on the programming of the venue.

David Byrne & St. Vincent just played one of the last Bowery-booked shows at the venue this past Wednesday (6/12). Check out pictures of that show.
