Finley’s and Spiritbar pick up concerts originally booked at The Royal

A number of events previously scheduled for The Royal have been relocated or cancelled following the sudden closure

A number of events previously scheduled for The Royal have been relocated or cancelled following the sudden closure of the popular Baker Street music venue Wednesday morning.

A dozen events were affected. Last night’s Open Stage was moved to Spiritbar, while tonight’s triple-header with David Newberry, The Nautical Miles and James Lamb will take place at Finley’s Irish Pub.

The After Work Swing Party on Friday was also moved to Finley’s, but the Lint concert scheduled for later that evening was cancelled.

On Saturday, Finley’s will host a Nelson CARES fundraiser featuring music by Jenny and the Jets earlier in the evening and Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra later that same night.

Glenn Michell’s Retirement Party has also moved to Finley’s on Tuesday, as has the Bessie and the Black Eddies show on Sunday, April 28.

The Dan Wesley concert on Thursday, April 25 and Michelle Mungall’s re-election fundraiser on Friday, April 26 are now at Spiritbar.

Wednesday’s Open Stage and Adham Shaikh’s CD release party are cancelled.

The Royal will remain closed pending the owner’s application to the liquor control board for a license to serve alcohol on the premises. The outgoing managers of the venue decided not to sign the existing liquor licence for the venue over to the building owner as result of a dispute between them.
