Sony Hall is a new, medium-sized venue in Times Square, located at 235 W. 46th St at the Paramount Hotel. It was formerly the Diamond Horseshoe and home to off-Broadway show "Queen of the Night." The venue, which is owned, operated and programmed by Blue Note, has a capacity of 500 sitting and 1000 standing. There's also a full-service restaurant and bar, and the venue will showcase Sony's latest AV technology. While the venue's schedule has yet to be announced, the Grand Opening is March 27 featuring a performance by MGMT. The initial quantity of free, general public tickets were claimed already but you can join the waitlist.

This Sony Hall show comes after MGMT's three sold-out NYC shows (3/24 at Kings Theatre, and 3/25 & 3/26 at Brooklyn Steel).
