Music Venues in Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough boasts a great music scene and here at Guitar Lessons Middlesbrough we are passionate about encouraging our guitar students to go and experience as much local music as they can. It is a great way of learning about guitarist stage craft and live performance, as well as inspiring you to get up on the stage and start gigging! To help you along your way we have drawn together a list of a few of the most significant local music venues that you should be checking out as a guitarist in Middlesbrough!

Ku Bar has seen the likes of Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, Reverend and The Makers, Pigeon Detectives, The View, Friendly Fires, Glasvegas and Nine Black Alps to name but a few grace their stage making it a must for all local guitarists. Located on Prince Regent Street, Town Centre, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 1DB the Ku Bar is the focus of the local music scene, the perfect place to start gigging as a local band or go and watch some up and coming local bands.

The Empire, built in 1897 as a music hall, has played host to a variety of performers from Charlie Chaplin to Paul Oakenfold to the Scissor Sisters! Located on Corporation Road, TS1 2RT bands like The Darkness, Kaiser Chiefs, Editors, Kasabian, Scissor Sisters, BRMC, Fun Lovin Criminals, Goldie Lookin Chain, Bloc Party, Dead 60s, Pil, Imelda May, Big Country, Ian Brown, to name but a few, have all performed here in the past few years. A great local music venue that is certainly a must go to if you are an aspiring guitarist - see you on the front row!

Middlesbrough Town Hall is another venue that local music fans make their way too on occasions, though in recent times it has been more the stage of the UK's finest comedians coming to tour in Middlesbrough. It is worth keeping your eye on their listings in case one of the up and coming bands doing a national tour decide on this venue when visiting the North East!
