Seeing you favourite band play live is what music is all about. A record is great and all, but seeing the music brought to life is what really connects you. What makes it all the more special is the perfect venue - and here are 30 of our favourites.
Yes albums are great to listen to in your spare time, and certainly allow you to digest music easier, but there's nothing quite like being soaked in someone's beer, screaming your heart out to 'your' song being played 10 times faster, while bouncing off of complete strangers - there really isn't.
That said, venues play a hugely important role in providing you with the ultimate experience, as, let's face it, if the gig setting isn't up to scratch then your night won't be either. Whether up close and personal is your thing, or you're looking for the crispest sounds to ever stimulate your eardrums, here are 30 great venues around the UK that will do your favourite bands justice.
