For a bunch of Richmond music fans, that ticket that was weighing down their wallets suddenly will be a lot lighter. The National has just announced that some of the high-profile shows Toad's Place was scheduled to present, before its sudden closure last week, will be moved to The National.

Pop queen Lady Gaga, alt-country fireball Neko Case, the indie-rock AP Tour and old-school alt-rock band Dinosaur Jr., will play the venue at 708 E. Broad St. rather than passing over the city altogether. But in wallet-lightening news, The National will honor tickets purchased for those shows at Toad's.

The venue will not, however, honor tickets bought for the Atmosphere, Ratatat and Kevin Rudolf.

It's not yet clear how many of the Toad's shows will be taken over by The National, but that should begin to pan out later this week. As for Toad's Place, it's still shuttered as a result of unpaid rent on the part of its owners, Meredith and Charles Joyner. Its future is yet to be determined.
