Event Venue creation. When will it be enabled?

Sometimes you see artists event, but set anywhere. Or sometimes you want to add an event, but you cannot add new places.
I know that the feature will be added somewhere in the future, but I would like to know when, because all new venue's events at the moment are cut out from the suggestions.
And still, for a Social Network related to music and events, this is something quite important.

I'd like to know this as well. I was trying to add an event in a stadium that hasn't hosted concerts until now, and it's a shame that it's not possible. I often used to find out about upcoming events from lastfm in the past, but now it's all incomplete.

Guys are we serious??? This cannot be possible, it's a feature that was already there, reimplementing it, it should not be that difficult.It starts to be really unacceptable.
Do something!
Also an official update about it?

@JamesScott tell us more

Guy, come on... it's been like 2 years. Can we please just get venue creation?

Events are such a mess with all the missing new venues, the sooner users can start fixing everything the better. What was once a comprehensive database of events is now no longer.

Also for this, any news, now it start to be quite common to see concerts without a venue.
Is this normal for a MUSIC RELATED SOCIAL NETWORK?
Official answer?

I've been away for 6 months or so now. Looks like things haven't changed.

How hard can it be to bring back venue creation?

Why do you expect any news just nine months after the start of the topic? This is not a pregnancy.

Yeah silly me... Guess I'm still too optimistic.

It's sad to see that even the simplest features that would make last.fm more valuable (not only for the users, but also in terms of the data they'd get) are somewhere lost in the huge backlog, waiting for someone to plan it in sprint 33666. maybe.

Dear lastfm staff, we are willing to clean up 2 years of event archives and add the correct venue to events as long as you enable venue creation soon. Please make this possible before there's too many events to clean up. We are literally willing to do a vast amount of hard work for you!

What's the latest on this? I just tried to create a new venue to no avail. In the end I added the event at the wrong venue, but obviously want to correct this as soon as possible. Thanks in anticipation.
