Live Music Venues

  • apollo
  • The Kings Head is now know as Zulus, they still have live music over weekends, and often host touring bands.
  • Shepherds Bush Empire on Shepherds Bush Green. Seen better days, poor sound, hard seats, drink prices outrageously high. Bar queues are ridiculous due to warm stock and slow service. Fans love it.
  • Carling Apollo near the flyover is nationally if not world famous.
  • Hammersmith Appolo.
  • Hammersmith Apollo has started to feature rock acts again.
  • Live metal and rock bands in the Kings Head at junction of Fulham Road and Fulham Palace Road.
  • Fulham Brass Band rehearse at Chiswick Club Society, Chiswick High Road, London W4 (nearest tube is Stamford Brook on District Line) on Thursdays from 7.45 to 10pm approx. Currently experiencing period of growth and have quite a busy diary for the forthcoming months. See the Band's website at
  • The Hammersmith Appollo used to be called The Hammersmith Odeon I saw Gary Glitter there and it was very very loud. An Ok venue but the traffic pollution flooding the air sytem from The Westway worries me.
  • The Apollo when it's not showing bad childrens musicals starring Philip Schofield. It also carries some of the big touring comedy names like Shooting Stars/The Fast Show or Ben Elton, whenever they tour.
  • West One Four (W Ken) and the Kings Head (Fulham) are good for new live music
  • Apollo (Hammersmith), Bottom Line (Shepherds Bush), Empire (Shpeherds Bush), Orange (West Kensington)
