Tremont Music Hall announced today it will close its doors after 20 years of business. A cornerstone of the Charlotte music scene, the West Tremont Avenue concert hall's owner said the building has been sold in a post on the venue's Facebook page today.

Tremont Music Hall has been a home to me and many local, regional, and national acts for the past 20 years. Not only has it been my great honor to own Tremont the past 5 years but it has been a greater joy to get to know the many fine musicians, wrestlers and comedians that Tremont has hosted.

Sadly, some things must change as economic prosperity moves into South End. Unfortunately, our building has been sold and we will be closing our doors on December 19th. We have a very special show planned on our final day to say thank you to some of the local bands that have supported us through the years.

My hope is that the 20 years of Tremont Music Hall will be remembered fondly; as we have worked very hard to make everyone who came through our doors feel like part of ‘The Tremont Family.

God Bless
-John Hayes, Owner
Only five years ago, Hayes purchased Tremont Music Hall from then-owner Dave Ogden. Last month, Ryan Pitkin wrote a story about how development in South End continues to threaten a number of locally owned businesses. 

With the Chop Shop set to close in November, the face of Charlotte's music scene is going to experience some lasting changes in the coming months.
