News : The Prague closes its doors – Yet another Melbourne venue gone

By on October 22, 2012 received news this afternoon of the imminent foreclosure of The Prague venue in Thornbury, effective immediately. The venue posted a press release via their official Facebook page.

Press release:

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts, that we have to make the following announcement. As of today, Monday the 22nd of October, we have been left with no other option but to close our doors, and regrettably cancel all bookings and events from this point onwards.

We were faced with a difficult economic climate, and did all we could to stay open for as long as possible. Sadly, our plan to see out the year didn’t work out, and those that know us, know just how hard we worked to try and achieve this, as well as the hard work offered to us by the various crew and techs making these last six months an enjoyable, however difficult, experience.

We are very sorry for any and all inconvenience this is sure to cause, and will do our best to help out in any way possible.

To all of you who supported us, drank with us, and worked with us, we appreciate you all whole heartedly, and thank you for the good times we were able to share, but for now, it is good bye.

Everyone at Metal Obsession wishes Darina and company all the best for the future. Thanks for all the great gigs.
