Royale Boston to open Saturday, concerts to follow

, Staff

Boston’s newest night club, Royale Boston, will host a grand opening party on Saturday. The new club will occupy the space once held by The Roxy at 279 Tremont Street in the city’s theatre district. Royale Boston, which is co-owned by longtime Avalon DJ and programmer Dave Ralph, will open on Saturday with a special party featuring a liver performance from All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter and music from DJ Sizzahands of the New York-based Crooklyn Clan and DJ Beyonder of Boston’s Bladerunners.

Royale Boston has also inked a deal with The Bowery Presents, a company that puts on concerts at the Bowery Ballroom, Terminal 5 and other well known venues in New York City. Under the long term agreement, The Bowery Presents will book approximately 100 concerts a year. The venue has a concert capacity of roughly 1,000, a solid space between the Paradise Rock Club and House of Blues.

So far, only one concert has been publicly scheduled for the new space. Public Image Ltd., the post-punk outfit led by Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon (a.k.a. Johnnny Rotton) will play Royale Boston on May 4 and 5 as part of their first tour of North American in 18 years. No ticket information has been available for the show.
