rock cover bars nottingham

Hi Im a geordie who every weekend enkoys some great live music on tyneside, check out www.riffsonline and you will see I am blessed with choice, went to liverpool recently and to be honest was bitterly disapointed, thought because it was liverpool I would be spoilt for choice but not a lot on music wise, so hoping nottingham is better, which pubs have live rock coverbands on at weekends, i lov the classics like led zep, sabbath etc but not a complete dinasaur into greenday, killers foo fighters etc,

so where shud ah gan? for a little middle aged heed bangin wor kid

I can't think of any pubs which have live rock bands on a regular basis, but it might be worth a look through the listings here http://www.leftlion.co.uk/

When it comes to clubs and live venues Rock City is probably the best bet http://www.rock-city.co.uk/

I remember trying to help the OP on his trip to Liverpool and agree about the lack of live music, especially when it comes to cover bands etc.

Although Thin Lizzy (with Ricky Warwick on vocals) did play the Academy last week !

Re Nottingham - follow Filberts advice and go to one of the most famous rock and metal venues in the UK, Rock City. ;-)

Hi there!!

Apart from our most famous (and best!!) Rock venue... Rock City.. I can heartily recommend the following pubs for a great 'rock' atmosphere, and live music if you time it right!!

http://www.salutationpub.com/

nottinghamgigguide.com/venue/…_Tumbler

http://www.themazerocks.com/

http://www.eerie-pubs.co.uk/pit-pendulum/

(The Pit has a great atmosphere and good music, but never seen a live band on there)

rabble.co.uk/Country/UK/Nottinghamshire.php

(scroll down the list from the above link to see more info on Nottingham City Centre pubs/clubs).

The Rock Scene in Nottingham has been alive and kicking for decades...and at any of the above venues..im sure you will have a great time!!
