The Disco Biscuits' four-night residency is venue's final event

The PlayStation Theater in Times Square will close down after a four-night residency from The Disco Biscuits. The jam band will play at the Times Square venue on Dec. 27, 28, 30 and the venue’s final show on New Year’s Eve.

Following this final run, The Disco Biscuits will have played PlayStation Theater 40 times, more shows than any other artist in the venue’s history.

According to a release from venue operators AEG and The Bowery Presents, the decision to close the venue comes at the conclusion of the existing lease agreement for the space at 1515 Broadway.

The 2,100-capacity PlayStation Theater opened in September 2005 and has welcomed more than 2.1 million fans through its doors, hosting over 1,500 shows with top artists including Ariana Grande, Fall Out Boy, Rihanna and Florida Georgia Line.

It has also hosted special performances such as Jay-Z’s 10th anniversary performance of his debut album Reasonable Doubt, Bon Jovi’s album launch of Have A Nice Day, among others.

Prior to its closing, the New York venue will see performances from Alessia Cara, Chase Rice, Craig Ferguson and more.

Tickets for all four Disco Biscuits shows will go on sale on Friday (Aug. 23) at 10am.
