News: Coronavirus Shuts Down all I.M.P Events – Many DC Venue’s Impacted

Today in the news the top headlining piece is what everyone expects, the dreaded Coronavirus (COVID-19.) The 930 Club’s website updated on venue closings in the DC area. Many venues up-and-down the coast are expected to announce restrictions and closings soon. We will keep this page updated as cancellations are announced!

On to the update from

March Concert Update:

While we wake up every day looking forward to welcoming fans into our venues, D.C.’s Mayor Bowser has just recommended that gatherings of 1,000 or more people be suspended until March 31. After tonight, to be cautious, we are postponing all I.M.P. events scheduled at the 9:30 Club, Lincoln Theatre and The Anthem, as well as shows 9:30 Club Presents at U Street Music Hall, regardless of the size of the gathering.  Shows will begin again April 1.

Patrons who have tickets for tonight’s shows can choose to attend as planned — or if they prefer not to attend, they can contact us for a refund. We are communicating with ticketholders now with full instructions.

For patrons who have tickets for other shows in March, we will be in touch and will make them aware once we have a new show date. If they’re unable to attend on the new date, they may request tickets to another show of similar value or a refund.

The health of our employees, patrons, community and artists is paramount. We’re hoping everyone takes the precautions health experts have been sharing.  We look forward to seeing everyone in April and beyond.
