Liverpool is known for its musical exports so as you’d expect there is a huge and eclectic choice of venues and artists to chose from if you’re looking for a concert on Merseyside.
It’s impossible to talk about Liverpool without mentioning The Beatles – the biggest band to come out of the city and indeed the country. The fab four are the most famous sons of the city that also spawned Gerry and the Pacemakers, Echo & the Bunnymen and Cast, among many others.

The city always attracts the biggest names on the music circuit and recent stand-out concerts have included Elton John playing to a sell-out crowd at the Echo Arena in June 2016 wearing a sparkly mauve tailcoat so as not to offend either side of the city. The Echo Arena also played host to Jeff Lynne’s ELO in April 2016 – their first tour for more than 30 years! And, in 2015, local boy Sir Paul McCartney came back to where it all started for a very special homecoming gig at the Echo Arena.
The Cavern Club is still very much alive and kicking, a thriving live music venue as well as being one of Liverpool’s top tourist attractions. Other Liverpool concert destinations include the Philharmonic Hall, an art deco concert hall with renowned acoustics which has seen recent concerts by Rufus Wainwright and Bobby Womack. For the crowd-pulling concerts, the Echo Arena – now called the M&S Bank Arena – first opened in 2008 and can host 11,000 music lovers.
Irish pop vocal group Westlife, the legendary British rock/pop superstar Rod Stewart, British pop bands The Vamps and Blue as well as Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini were just some of the live acts you could see in the city last year.
There are some big names heading to Liverpool in 2023, so be sure to snap up tickets for The 1975, Echo & The Bunnyman, WWE Live! as well as comedian Peter Kay.
