When you think of Liverpool, what comes to mind? Music of course! Music is so entrenched in the history of Liverpool that people of all generations associate the city with music. From legends of days gone by including The Beatles (obviously!) and Gerry and the Pacemakers, through Frankie Goes to Hollywood, the Lightning Seeds to Atomic Kitten, Liverpool-based bands flow through the DNA of the UK music scene.

And it’s not surprising that Liverpool has some great gig venues to celebrate its musical legacy. You really are spoiled for choice – from the 11,000 capacity Echo Arena, to the O2 Academy set in a 19th Century warehouse with a capacity of 1,200 to some smaller gems. Try out The Kazimier, one of the country’s most talked about live music venues and Maguire’s Pizza Bar with a back room reserved for live shows – and some excellent pizza as the name suggests!

Most of the biggest names in the music industry stop by to play a gig in Liverpool. Some recent memorable nights in the city have included Irish singer songwriter Van Morrison who played at the art deco Philharmonic Hall, a venue known for its acoustics, in November 2016. In the same month, Rod Stewart blew away a sold-out the then Echo Arena (now M&S Bank Arena) with the first UK date of his From Gasoline Alley to Another Country Hits tour, thrilling his fans with some of the most popular numbers from his 45-year career.
