For nearly six and a half years, Melbourne’s established The Reverence Hotel situated in Footscray has played host to some of the biggest and best hard & heavy shows, including various Metal Obsession sponsored live shows over those years. As of today, the venue has announced some pretty sad news regarding the longevity of the venue as it will cease trade on March 2nd, 2019.

The venue has yet to secure another lease on the venue’s pub and has been operating on a month-to-month basis. Without a lease or any certainty for long-term operations, the venue has unfortunately stopped investing back into the venue to make it viable for the foreseeable future.

The venue comments via their official Facebook page.

Unfortunately, it’s now time we call last drinks with last day of trading planned for March 2nd. We haven’t managed to secure another lease on the pub and have been operating on a month-to-month basis. Without a lease or any certainty for a home, we are unable to plan long-term and have had to stop investing back into the venue. Looking back we are really proud of our achievements, the community that has congregated, and the memories that have been made are immense. What we’ve created here has far surpassed our expectations!

We know we couldn’t have done it without a lot of help, particularly in the beginning. A lot of friends (old and new) contributed a lot of energy and effort in so many ways, and to them, we are eternally grateful.

Thank you everyone for your support over the last 6.5 years, but a special thanks must go to our immediate family, Greg, Cam, Josh, Johno, Death Proof, Timeout, Bandmates Vic, Maribyrnong City Council, massive thanks to our Footscray community, and of course all the bands and musicians that have graced our stages over the years. Most importantly, to the past and present rev staff, we could not have done it without you and we appreciate and love you all.

Metal Obsession wishes to thank The Reverence Hotel for their hospitality in supporting our sponsored events at the venue, and the truckload of amazing local bands who have performed there over the years. We wish everyone involved in the venue the best of luck for their future endeavours.
