With some of the biggest venues in the UK, Birmingham is a popular venue for bands and music lovers alike. Its central location and easy accessibility mean that if a band is touring the country, they’re likely to hit Birmingham.

Birmingham has a rich history of producing musical megastars including Black Sabbath and its famous frontman Ozzy Osbourne, Electric Light Orchestra and 80s New Romantic icons Duran Duran.

The last 10 years have seen some stand-out gigs take place in Birmingham. One of the most memorable was Take That at Villa Park in June 2011. Forty-eight thousand fans saw the first night of Take That’s Progress Live tour, which included the very first chance in 15 years to see Robbie Williams rejoin his former bandmates.

Four years later, American rock band the Eagles wowed the audience at then LG Arena (now the Resorts World Arena). The show was a three-hour journey through the Eagles’ back catalogue, an intimate occasion, given the size of the venue, that no one who was present will ever forget.

We’ve got a feeling that some of the bands coming up in 2024 are going to create some new great memories. The gigs we’re most looking forward to in 2024 in Birmingham include Kings of Leon, Justin Timberlake, Girls Aloud, Alice Cooper and Heart.

As you would expect from the second most populated city in the UK, there are a great selection of music venues in Birmingham. The best venues include the Utilita Arena and Resorts World Arena, both of which are home to everything from sport and comedy to some of the biggest music acts around.

Although the O2 Academy opened in 2000, the building has a rich musical heritage spanning from a previous life as a ballroom before evolving into the Hummingbird which hosted legendary live performances from Nirvana and The Beastie Boys. These days it has a capacity of 3,000 and acts including Biffy Cyro and The Black Crows have graced its stage.

Birmingham Symphony Hall is widely regarded as the finest concert hall in Europe and is loved by performers because of its good acoustics.
