In May, CultureMap reported on The Terminal, the new entertainment destination in the highly anticipated Post Houston. With a capacity of 5,000 people, the venue will be the largest downtown venue when it opens in November.
Now, locals who go to shows downtown can expect a new name and line-up for the bustling hotspot at the historic Barbara Jordan Post Office.
In homage to Houston, The Terminal was renamed to 713 music hall, announced LiveNation.
As for the new lineup, LiveNation estimates the venue will host at least 100 events each year. The following is scheduled for 2021-2022, starting with our beloved Willie, according to LiveNation:
November 17: Willie Nelson & family
November 18th and 19th: Rüfüs Du Sol with flight facility
November 20: Whiskey Myers with The Steel Woods and Bones Owens
November 21: Evanescence + Halestorm with plush
December 31: Khruangbin with Aidan Kennedy
February 11th: Extinguishing with Bag Raiders
A LiveNation spokesperson told CultureMap that guests should regularly check the official website for updates on COVID safety logs.
“Music is all about connection and we are proud that 713 Music Hall represents its hometown so well that it connects artists with fans in Houston,” said Sherri Sosa, president of Venue Nation, in a press release. “We can’t wait to open the doors and bring more live music into town.”
The 713 venue offers a myriad of tech-inspired innovations. The building has been designed with advanced architecture that provides artists and fans with a distinctive, one-of-a-kind experience by recreating the same intimate feel of a small club.
When artists are on stage, the guests literally appear in their line of sight as if they were “wallpapering” the room, with practically no visible gaps or gaps, as all balcony and walkways are designed so diagonally that the artist can walk through the corridors – only people .
In the meantime, sitting balconies named “Tribune Tiers” will be arranged over the general entrance area. This new, state-of-the-art design will provide guests with an intimate viewing experience even though they are not on the floor of the venue.
As reported, the 713 Music Hall will be an important anchor in transforming the historic, former Barbara Jordan Post Office into a center for culture, dining, shopping and recreation.
