VENUEWATCH: Its not just the British and Americans who tear down perfectly good performing arts venues in the name of progress - Australians do it too, and at the moment Melbourne's Palais theatre is under threat. Built in 1926, it and its sister nightclub the Palace have played host to dates by Springsteen, Nirvana, Radiohead, Prince and... well, you get the idea. Of course, the big idea is to replace the buildings with apartments. People who'd rather have a venue capable to attracting top-flight acts to Melbourne than a bunch of houselets for solicitors are invited to sign an online petition.
