Statement from Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles on the proposed demolition of the Showbox Theater

Summary

“So much of our history as a community is rooted in the music and musical acts that have come from and have come through Seattle.”

Story

“I’m devastated to learn that there is a plan to demolish Seattle’s legendary and iconic Showbox Theatre. So much of our history as a community is rooted in the music and musical acts that have come from and have come through Seattle. From Duke Ellington to Pearl Jam to Macklemore, many moments in that theatre have been turned into lifelong memories.”

“I am committed to working with the community and stakeholders to find a way to preserve this historical landmark so many more talented artists can continue to perform for generations to come.”
