Iconic NYC venue Irving Plaza will close for eight months later this year to undergo renovations, and will reopen in 2020. Billboard reports:

Numerous upgrades and renovations are planned for the venue that once hosted Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, The Foo Fighters, The Talking Heads, The Clash, The Ramones and Pope John Paul II and has been owned by the Polish Army Veterans of America since 1948. Located in New York’s Union Square neighborhood, the renovations at Irving Plaza will be overseen by Live Nation clubs and theaters division and include revamps of the lobby area and the music hall, new bars on all levels, the addition of a downstairs VIP lounge and remodeling of the mezzanine including a new box-seating section configuration.

[…] “It is fitting that in the year that Poland celebrates its 100th anniversary of regaining its independence that District 2 and Live Nation have entered into an even closer long-term relationship to upgrade Irving Plaza to its original elegance and grandeur,” says building owner representative Mark Chroscielewski.

The venue’s schedule currently runs through June 30 and includes shows from DMX, La Dispute, Gunna, Eels, Higher Brothers, Movements, Tom Morello, Basement/Nothing, Sick Of It All/Slapshot/Snapcase, and more. Full schedule and tickets here.

This news comes as nearby Union Square-area venue Webster Hall is just weeks away from reopening, following over a year of renovations.
