MEMO Music Hall is an iconic performance venue in the heart of St Kilda and is considered to be ‘A HIDDEN GEM’.
MEMO has an iconic place in the Australian entertainment industry from its beginnings as a Dance Hall in 1924, to a cinema, the home of Telefil Recording studios where Normie Rowe recorded his 1965 hit It Ain’t Necessarily So, headquarters of the Pan Pacific film company (Heath Ledger’s Ned Kelly) and in the last five years one of the country’s leading music venues. In that time it has presented almost 600 shows featuring international acts and legends of the Australian music industry including: Paul Kelly, Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier, Kate Ceberano, The Sports, Mental As Anything, The Black Sorrows, Dragon, Vika & Linda, Renée Geyer, Shane Nicholson, Diesel, Boom Crash Opera, Spectrum, Chain, Ross Wilson, Vince Jones, Normie Rowe, and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
In 2020, MEMO’s management has partnered with Renegade Films, the makers of RocKwiz, to live-stream music events from the iconic St Kilda venue. The first on 5 April featured Kate Ceberano & Co. attracting a large online audience both nationally and internationally. The Live Stream concerts were already in the pipeline as a new venture for MEMO and Renegade Films, expedited in reaction to the closure of indoor entertainment venues due to COVID-19 restrictions. Given the size of MEMO Music Hall, which is 750 metres square, musicians are be able to perform on the grand Art Deco Proscenium Arch stage the required 2 metres apart, meeting current Government indoor workplace social distancing guidelines.
Tickets for the digitally streamed concerts are available at www.memomusichall.com.au, just follow the links the shows you wish to purchase.
