Didn't see that one coming

The dream of resurrecting the name of The Marquee has its tits now pointing slightly upwards. Of course, putting a venue in a shopping centre was a dumbass idea in the first place, but more to the point - where was the value supposed to be in reviving a name? Sure, in Liverpool the faux Cavern does good business, but it knows it's a nostalgia brand.

Expecting The Kids to get excited about a place because it had the same name as a place their grandfathers went to is pinning rather too much hope on the brand; certainly the acts booked weren't going to attract people who enjoyed the real Marquee.
