GO Live Music in Blackpool

Live Music in Blackpool From jazz and blues to classical and opera, with plenty of pop and rock thrown in too, Blackpool has it all in the live music stakes.

As seems to be the norm for the resort’s live entertainment, the main venues to see big name bands, well-known country singers and famous crooners are Blackpool’s theatres.

For pop acts such as the Scissor Sisters or instrumental artists like Tommy Emanuel head to the Winter Gardens [map], which offers a number of venues from the intimate Spanish Hall [map] to the lively Pavilion Theatre [map].

If you want to see the biggest stars of today in action then the Opera House, which is part of the Winter Gardens complex, is probably more your scene. Recent performers here have included Katie Melua and the Beach Boys, while other top names to have graced the stage include Daniel Bedingfield, Jane McDonald and Status Quo.

Those of you hoping to see some great live music in a traditional club atmosphere will not be disappointed in Blackpool, as there are plenty of venues depending on your taste in music.

Situated on Church Street, the Musical Hall Tavern [map] came runner-up in the variety club category in the Blackpool Tourism awards in 2002. This venue plays host to many different acts, including Andy Knight, who wows the crowd with his piano classics. The neighbouring K2 Bar offers a more contemporary live music menu, mainly focusing on dance tunes.

For Irish folk music get along to Scruffy Murphy's [map] on Corporation Street at the weekends, while The Kite Club [map] at the Station Hotel on Talbot Road offers a good mix of rock and blues.

The popular Galleon [map] nightclub on Adelaide Street also plays host to live music from up-and-coming bands, and the Alabama Showboat [map] on Cocker Square offers punters the 'Ultimate Party Night Experience' with live cabaret-style entertainment.
