While First Avenue has closed its doors for concerts as part of Minnesota’s response to COVID-19, the iconic venue is giving fans another way to show their support.
First Avenue on Tuesday announced a collaboration with shoe company Vans, and the proceeds from all customized shoes from the “Foot the Bill” campaign will go to the club.
Designs for the shoes include stars reminiscent of those painted on the club’s outer wall.
A pair will cost you $90, and you can order a pair here.
After announcing the collaboration, fans showed off their designs on social media, including plenty paying homage to Minneapolis and First Avenue icon Prince.
First Avenue will also hold a virtual music festival on Thursday to go benefit COVID-19 relief and local musicians.
