(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) – Adam Sabloff, a Managing Partner of New Orlean’s giant entertainment complex TwiRoPa, has officially confirmed that the 40,000 square-foot facility has officially closed its doors due to irreparable structural damage from Hurricane Katrina.
The huge facility housed five stage areas and three dance floors, and has hosted many top acts, including Duran Duran, Ani DiFranco, Erasure and Bright Eyes, since opening in 2003.
Sabloff posted the following letter on the complex’s website on October 24th:
Dear Friends, Family, and Loyal Customers:
I am very sorry to say that the damage to the TwiRoPa facility was extensive and severe. Initial inspections have led to the belief that the building is not structurally sound. Rebuilding the facility is not feasible and it is with great sorrow that I hereby officially announce that TwiRoPa will not be reopening.
The good news is that many of the city's venues are reopening every day and the music scene is growing stronger as people continue to flood back into the city.
Once again I want to thank all of you for your continued support over the years and throughout this terrible disaster. And to my fellow evacuees, I wish you all the best and my thoughts are with you as we all recover from this disaster.
And if there is anything I can ever do for anyone, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all.
Adam Sabloff, Managing Partner
