The Palladium in Worcester to be demolished? [Updated with Petition link!]

There is some seriously devastating speculation about The Palladium venue in Worcester, MA. The owner of the venue is contemplating bulldozing the legendary concert hall to expand parking for a nearby courthouse.  No, I’m not fucking with you.  Apparently taxes for this real-estate have skyrocketed, and have more than tripled over the past year!  We’re talking MILLIONS of dollars Juggalos. I don’t know what the reasoning behind the tax hikes are, but it has put the owner in somewhat of a bind.  In this article, they even mention that the Palladium is “Juggalo Headquarters”.  Here’s a quote from the article:

Word spread to the Worcester Mag office pretty quickly on Tuesday that the owners of the Palladium were filing – or at least threatening to file – paperwork for the demolition of the music hot spot and regional Juggalo headquarters in order to create more parking for the courthouse across the street. Worcester attorney and Palladium owner John Fischer, when asked to comment on the rumors, said he hadn’t made a decision yet but added, “It has a lot to do with taxes.”

I wouldn’t go so far as to blame the owner for this, but I’m not sure what else can be done.  Hopefully he’ll weigh out his options and see that it’s worth it to keep the doors open.  We’ll keep you posted on this situation for sure.  To read the entire article, click right here.

UPDATE – There has been a petition created that is requesting 5,000 signatures from those of you who do NOT want to see this historic venue demolished!  Get in on the movement and SIGN THE PETITION!

    Calling a building the Juggalo headquarter these days is the safest way to make authorities want to remove it.
