Gig Venues in Sunderland

Gig Venues in Sunderland

Tyne & Weir has a vibrant music scene and venues across both Newcastle and Sunderland create the foundation for the industry in the north east and play a part in the future of local music as well. Each venue has it's own ups and downs and offers special nights out. At Singing Lessons Sunderland we believe there is no better way to introduce yourself to the local music scene than getting involved, so check out what's on around the city and enjoy a night of live music.


 Smuggler's Pub

Live Music is becoming increasingly popular in bar-venue hybrids where there is a market for people who want to enjoy a few drinks out with raw music in the background creating a relaxed atmosphere. Smuggler's Pub is located on the seafront and suits this purpose brilliantly, with events and music on regularly - and they like to mix things up when it comes to their performers so the venue won't become the same old pub with the same old genre; there'll always be something to look forward to.

O2 Academy Newcastle

The O2 Academy chain is a huge part of the live music industry and have venues in major cities with a music scene that warrants the investment involved in creating a venue from scratch. Tyne & Weir makes the cut and rail links through Newcastle make it the ideal place for an O2 in the county. The venue regularly attracts some of the biggest names and hosts some of the best nights out when it comes to live music. Check out their website and see what's on - find yourself an event and book yourself in.

Stadium of Light

The Stadium of Light acts as an arena-sized venue for the North-East and has played host to some of the biggest names internationally, including Oasis, Foo Fighters. Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Take That. Concerts aren't held that often due to Sunderland AFC's intense premier league football schedule but when they do, the party follows suit. Thousands of people flock to weir side to partake in a memorable live music concert that they'll all remember and tell their friends for years to come. Opportunities like this to see some of the biggest names come few and far between so it is certainly worth keeping up to date on what the Stadium of Light has planned.
