Waiting Room closes; shows are moved to other venues

The Waiting Room concert venue has closed.

The closing of the club at 334 Delaware Ave., which also featured the smaller Studio @ Waiting Room, was announced in a statement by club owner Chris Ring. The more than 40 shows scheduled in the two rooms are being moved to the Town Ballroom, VENU, Mohawk Place and the Landmark on Pearl.

"To all of our friends, to all of the artists and to all of the patrons who have supported us over the past 4 years, I have some bad news.  It's with the heaviest of hearts that I have to report, effective immediately, the Waiting Room and Studio at Waiting have closed their doors," Ring said in a prepared statement. Pending legal advice, Ring could not comment further at this time.

"As always, the show must go on and we will still be supportive of your shows at the other venues in town.  Thanks for making Waiting Room your home away from home for the past four years," he wrote to the bands.

Here is the rundown of the status of the concerts that were scheduled.
