London has one of the longest musical histories in the world, and London concerts are truly second to none. The city itself has bred some of the best artists in the world, and the venues in which they play are truly museums of music.
For starters, consider the list of artists and bands who have not only played concerts in London, but are actually from the UK: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Queen, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Sting, Fleetwood Mac, The Cure, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Coldplay, George Michael, Mumford and Sons, Lily Allen, Eric Clapton, Morrissey, and Pink Floyd, just to name a few.
And it’s not just the artists, but where they play the concerts that matters in London as the city is home to major concert halls like Royal Albert Hall and HMV Forum, arenas like the O2 and Wembley, and of course all the midsize spots like Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Hammersmith Apollo, O2 Academy Brixton and Islington, and countless others.
Every kind of musical genre can be found on any day of the week, whether it’s the latest dubstep king playing at the Ministry of Sound, or rap, rock, and reggae artists filling venues of all sizes.
And beyond the halls, arenas, forums, and stadiums, there are hundreds of small venues strewn throughout the city where Coldplay and Adele wannabes sing their hearts out in front of small groups and attempt to become the next big thing.
