Hi everyone,

We've just released a new update.

Venue creation

You can now create new venues when adding or editing events. It's a fairly simple process...



When searching for venues you'll be given the chance to add a new one



Simply fill in the various venue details



Then make sure the map pin is in the correct location. Setting the map correctly helps with our event recommendations.

We hope you find this useful.

Cheers,
Team Last.fm

Thank you for providing me with my most sought after update! I will start using this immediately to add venues that have opened since the ability was taken away.

Thanks a lot. This is a very useful feature. Now, will you let us see/edit the venue pages? How can I update incorrect info on previously created venues?

just had a closer look at this. is there a way to edit existing entries? I have found several duplicates or venues with wrong addresses / incomplete information. Is there a way to change that?

You can't edit the details of existing venues at this time, but you could edit the event and change the venue to a more up-to-date / complete one (I would only do this for upcoming events, mind).

this sucks, for the several venues that changed their address in these years. we can "move" some events from the old to the new one (in fact, a duplicate), but in the future (hope soon) you should permit to edit and *merge* these venues, so each venue with an important gig history can have all his gig history listed on a page!

Agreed, editing venues would be a good next step.

Not just editing new venues, but also deleting duplicates... some folks are to lazy and add a new venue when they themselves use incorrect or incomplete names of venues.

there should be an option to flag a venue for deletion or for editing or a duplication.

or flag the most correct / complete venue entry in the database.

is there a plan to bring back in a little time the venue page, with all its past and future gigs?

Why doesn't the site have an option to delete an artist / album / song with a single click? Why do we have to delete one by one? Seriously, people. I have no desire to organize my library or to use the website in this way. Why is it taking so long to implement this option?

OMG, finally! This is such great news.

Would it be fair to assume that this will also mean we can FINALLY delete scrobbles with unknown scrobble dates?

I hope so because there are bands I no longer listen to on my playlist. It's just too bad you shit the bed with the neighbours section though. The neighbours section is just horrible and I get the worst recommendations the way it is set up now. I miss the old way.
