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, opened in 2008, can host 11,000 music lovers.
There are some big names heading to Liverpool in 2017, kicking off with Kings of Leon, playing at the Echo Arena on 25 February, one of five arenas in the UK they are playing to launch their new album WALLS. The Philharmonic Hall will be visited by Billy Ocean on 27 March as part of his ‘Here You Are – The Best of Billy Ocean’ tour. And, when it comes to big names, it doesn’t come much bigger than The Who, appearing at the Echo Arena on 3 April as part of their Tommy UK tour.
