Twenty One Pilots, 1975’s Matt Healy, Steve Aoki, the late Mac Miller and other stars have talked about the Rave’s supernatural reputation and its allegedly haunted backstage pool.
You can now see the pool and get behind-the-scenes access to the Milwaukee music venue during this month’s “Halloween Blackout” tours.
A limited number of guests, all required to wear masks and keep social distances, will be guided with only a flashlight during the approximately one-hour tour. Participants must be at least 18 years old.
Tickets for the tours – on October 23, 24, 30 and 31 – are available on therave.com. Prices range from $ 40 to $ 100 for midnight tours on Halloween weekend, and each ticket includes a drink.
It’s the latest out-of-the-box way Rave tried to make money during the coronavirus crisis. The Rave also auctioned autographed posters and canvas prints, and sold “return to concert kits” that include branded face masks and, for VIP packages, more traditional Rave tours.
The venue has gone 203 days without live music and most venues across the country have been closed since March.
The Rave won’t be the only Milwaukee venue opening its doors for special tours this Halloween season. The Pabst Theater Group is offering haunted tours and ghost hunts at the Riverside Theater this month. They have proved popular enough that the venue has added several tours, starting October 9.
Piet also talks about concerts, local music and more on “TAP’d In” with Jordan Lee. Listen to it at 8am Thursday on WYMS-FM (88.9) or wherever you find your podcasts.
