The world famous House of Blues on the Sunset Strip echoed live music from the corrugated tin for very the last time.

Last night Steel Panther ended the rich 21 year history of the location which has seen artist like Aerosmith, Pennywise, NOFX, Prince, Rhianna, Linkin Park and thousands more performed at the venue which opened in 1994.

It is the end of an era as the strip is slowly losing the rich tradition of live music and live music venues on the 3-mile stretch. In its’ place will be built a luxury hotel and residential complex.

The sunset strip will now only have two live music venues left in the Whiskey-A-Go-Go and The Roxy, but how much longer do these locations have on the strip as more high priced boutique hotels slowly take over and we see the history of live music slowly enter the book of what was and what made the strip famous.

The House of Blues is currently looking for another location in Los Angeles but will take 12 to 18 months. House of Blues Anaheim and San Diego remain open and will except some of the employees losing position at this location.

So until we get to see awesome live music again House of Blues Los Angeles we say goodbye and waiting eagerly for your doors to open once again. Welcoming music lovers from around the world with the sound of guitars, drums and of course the world famous gospel brunch.

Please comment and leave your memories of the bands and shows you have seen at this venue.
