Due to the recent announcement that the Max Watt’s Brisbane venue will close it’s doors in late October, the Wintersun show scheduled at the venue on November 4th has been moved to an alternative venue, The Brightside.
All ticket purchases to date, will remain valid for the show.
The official Max Watt’s statement is as follows: “Max Watt’s has announced their decision to close the Brisbane venue following the Dillinger Escape Plan gig on October 22nd. Regretfully Max Watt’s were unable to reach ongoing terms with the landlord, making it unfeasible to continue to invest in the venue.
Booker, Jesse Barbera, has worked closely with promoters and agents of forward bookings and will continue to support all bookings and holds into venues with appropriate capacities without any need to change dates.
Oztix will advise ticket holders in this smooth process of change. Max Watt’s will ensure that any other ticketing agencies provide the same service to their customers.
Although this has been a very difficult decision, Max Watt’s has acted to strengthen the integrity and sound operations of the Melbourne and Sydney venues. Brisbane is a smaller market with aggressive competition and higher costs. Max Watt’s is redirecting focus to invest in the success of iconic Melbourne and progressive Sydney Max Watt’s venues. This decision will enhance rather than risk the security of Melbourne and Sydney”.
