The Roy Wilkins Auditorium website has posted an announcement that the Black Label Society concert scheduled for this Saturday, October 3 at the St. Paul venue has been moved to Epic in Minneapolis. All tickets will be honored, and Clutch, Children Of Bodom, and 2Cents will still open the show.
This is undoubtedly bad news since obviously ticket sales were slow for the 4,000-5,000 seat Roy Wilkins Auditorium, as indicated by moving this to the much smaller Epic nightclub. I've always hated the "long-room" layout of Epic (formerly the Quest Club), with its view-obstructing pillars lining the length of two sides of the floor. On the upside, it's always great to see bands in smaller venues but Epic is a less-than-desirable venue.
