Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex to shut after just 12 months
The museum will shutdown on January 3, 2010, a year after it first opened in the Big Apple.
A statement on the venue’s official website rockannex.com added: “The Rock Annex is exploring opportunities for a tour that would bring exclusive artifacts to music fans and rock enthusiasts around the world.
“Fans have just one more month to experience the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC, showcasing rare artifacts from legendary artists including Springsteen, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson and its featured exhibit, ‘John Lennon: The New York City Years’.”
The Lennon exhibition included many artifacts from his life in New York, including a paper bag containing the bloody clothes from the night he was shot dead, photographs, musical instruments, handwritten lyrics and artwork.
