LOGAN SQUARE — Concord Music Hall — which closed after music vibrations caused its ceiling to collapse early Saturday — should reopen by Friday for a concert by Zion & Lennox, an employee said Monday.
Tickets to see the Puerto Rican regaeton duo that night are still available for purchase on Concord's website, and a box office employee said they anticipated being open in time for the 10 p.m. show.
Concord management did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The hall has been closed since a two-by-three section of plaster fell on the crowd while DJ Datsik, a dubstep DJ famous for his bass-heavy production, performed a set at the club at 2047 N. Milwaukee Ave. That heavy bass likely caused the ceiling to fall, a structural engineer hired by the venue determined.
"The structural engineer's preliminary investigation suggests that vibrations from the music contributed to the failure," said Mimi Simon, a city Buildings Department spokeswoman.
A 25-year-old and 20-year-old man were taken to St. Mary's Hospital with minor injuries. A 31-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital, also with minor injuries.
Simon said she had no update on the situation Monday afternoon and that construction permits had not yet been issued for the repairs.
