Palace Theatre Closure, But Anyway Moves On…

Late last month, Melbourne’s most iconic music venue shut its doors to the public. According to the venue, the landlord had made the decision to demolish the venue to make way for a new $180 million, five-star hotel and apartment complex in its place.

For the past year, Anyway had brought a super-club atmosphere to the Palace, the weekly club night pairing local and international acts like Digitalism and Alison Wonderland with flamethrowers, dancing LED robots, indoor fireworks and more top-level production.

It’s been a long road to this point for the embattled Palace, but the Anyway crew made sure that the send it off in the style that it deserves, with Molly Meldrum ending up on stage singing Living On A Prayer to thousands – Anyway… the next chapter for the iconic Saturday night has relocated to another one of Melbourne’s well known venues, The Bottom End – and are prepared for the next chapter.
