Eric Bogle concert
Never go on a warm to hot night(no air)Seating was cramped. Left early not a good night????Would not attend that place again as no thoughts for paying guests.
My mother went to see Shane here last night as I got to look around. This place has charisma, a seating area in front of the stage and lovely people working there.
You can really relax and enjoy a show here. Tables are allocated so there is no squeezing and fighting for a spot and no mosh pit, which suits by ageing mother. A nice, big open area which did not feel crowded at all.
I liked it so much that I want to see a how there now.
Step back in time in this 50’s venue
I’ve been here a few times now and its a great low cost way to see live music. The venue is very original - no air con, but its a great experience if you enjoy seeing live music in an intimate setting. We have seen some high calibre acts and although you might be squished in, you do get allocated seating and there is room to kick up your heels on the dance floor. Great night everytime!
Saw ’Blues Brothers Celebration with a suitcase full of Blues’ (mouthful I know!) show and we weren’t disappointed by the show or the venue!
Memo Music Hall is a great venue for shows. It’s intimate, casual and all the staff (excluding the security guards) are happy and cheerful.
Suggest you book a table online to avoid disappointment.
Access to public transport - trams - is close by too.
Subscribe to their mailing list, their line up of shows cater to all tastes.
Footbridge with global history.
Now just a footbridge there are panels explaining the ancestry of the Aboriginal peoples of Australia, as well as the migrant history of those who now call Australia home. Interesting walk across.
Felt ripped off!
I went to Memo Music Hall for the first time on Saturday, November 10, 2018 to see South of the Border Comedy Show featuring Judith Lucy and Guests. There were 5 of us, we had purchased tickets for a table with seating on the balcony. The table turned out to be a very small square wooden table with a chair either side of it placed against the balcony, the other 3 chairs were then placed along the opposite side of the table. I was one of the 3 and we soon discovered we were at a disadvantage. Whilst seated we were not able to view the stage or the performers, all we could see was the top of the Stage. In order to see what was happening on Stage, we had to stand up! We had paid for seats at a table NOT standing room only tickets which were cheaper. The Show was a sell out and it would appear that Management in a blatant attempt to cash in, added extra tables/seats in the balcony area which was obviously not suitable for viewing. It looked like an area normally used by customers getting drinks from the bar. There was tiered seating on one side of the balcony and Management have then added more tables/seats in the bar area. The fact that this arrangement was totally unsuitable seems to have escaped Management or perhaps they just didn’t care! Once again I repeat - we were ripped off!!!!
A Wonderful Live Music Venue
A group of us went to Memo Music Hall to see Black Sorrows on New Year’s Eve. A convenient location, lovely acoustics and intimate venue. It was warm inside though and they need to work on their airconditioning.
An unique link with Melbourne’s past and present
Sandridge Bridge was the first steel bridge over the Yarra River forming a link between the city and Port Melbourne, where thousands of immigrants first landed on Australian shores.
There are ten sculptures across the bridge representing time frames of immigration to Australia--
1. Gayip – The Aboriginal Period
2. First Settler – The Convict Period (1788 – 1868).
3. Melbourne Beauty – The Gold Rushes (1850 – 1890).
4. Walker and his tucker bag – Assisted Migration (1830 – 1930).
5. Shelter – Displaced persons (1947 – 1953).
6. Urban Wheel – European Migration (1947 – 1983).
7. Running Couple – Refugees (1856 – 2005).
8. Butterfly Girl – Asian and middle east migration (1975 – 2005). 9. Technoman – Students and professionals (1975 – 2005).
10. Walking Sun – Australian Multiculturalism.
There are really interesting glass screens that record the details of Indigenous peoples and immigrant arrivals to Australia by country of origin since 1788.
