New Owners for Richmond’s Old-Time Venue, The National, and The NorVa

IMG_5279

On two occasions, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing The Robbin Thompson Band play at The National, a former movie theater/historic venue located in Richmond, Va. The National is definitely in my Top 5 list of places to watch a show; another place I’d love to visit is the NorVa, which is located in downtown Norfolk, across Monticello Avenue from the MacArthur Center shopping mall.

Both were owned by RIC Capital Ventures, which sold the NorVa in late September and has just sold The National, too, after dealing with a lawsuit during the past year that was filed by a group of the company’s investors. Here’s hoping that the positive concert experiences continue at both halls with the new owner, AEG Live >>> http://www.richmondbizsense.com/2014/10/06/the-nationals-owners-bow-out/
