First Avenue has not received an "all clear" from Minneapolis city building inspectors following its partial ceiling collapse, meaning the iconic venue will remain closed until at least the middle of next week.
The Star Tribune reports that the decision was made Wednesday to replace the entire ceiling of the club's Mainroom, instead of just fixing the section that fell. It came after an inspection by safety officials Tuesday.
As a result, Tuesday's double-billed concert with "The Psychedelic Furs" and "The Church" will now be held at the State Theater, with all original tickets honored, according to the venue's website.
This Friday's "Wicked City" film premiere party has been canceled, and dance night "Transmission" is postponed till Sept. 19.
Two revelers sustained minor injuries after part of the ceiling fell in last Wednesday during a "Theory of a Deadman" concert.
The Current reports general manager Nate Kranz had hoped to reopen the Mainroom this weekend, but those hopes were dashed after Tuesday's inspection.
"Unfortunately we got a bad review from the inspection," he told the radio station. "We had an engineer come out and we were done with the work we expected to have to do. But they wanted to look at the rest of the ceiling, and unfortunately they didn’t like what they saw so we’re going to stay closed."
The Current adds this Sunday's First Avenue "Garage Sale" will still go ahead, but will be held outdoors on 1st Avenue between 7th and 8th streets rather than in its garage.
