Well, that’s what the fans call the beloved FESTIVAL HALL, previously known as the “West Melbourne Stadium”.
Was looking up the details for a band playing there – and there’s a new “logo” for Festival Hall – made me laugh actually !
I’ve seen soooo many bands there – from Warrant and Skid Row – to Slayer and Sepultura.
But – the sound is appalling – and it’s just a big barn.
It was the official wrestling & boxing venue for the Olympics in 1956 – and “The Beatles”, “Frank Sinatra” and AC/DC have played there – lots of history.
Anyway – rock on, Festival Hall – it’s (sadly) the best venue for BIG bands, now that The Palace has burnt down !
