Intimate location for some rather big names. Careful buying tickets from scalpers - check with the box office.
- This Hammersmith venue is a large theatre with space for a total of 3,719 people - 3,417 seated and 302 standing - with four seats reserved in the rear stalls for two wheelchairs and two assistants. Well-known for hosting pop concerts and gigs, performances range from musicals to one-man comedy shows, which change frequently despite the lavishness of the productions. The auditorium was re-decorated recently and there are three public bars for guests to frequent before the show and in the interval. The Apollo Hammersmith has hosted a range of massive grunge, metal and rock acts including Travis, Black Eyed Peas, Feeder, Norah Jones, Green Day, Incubus, Velvet Revolver and The Charlatans to name a few. This legendary venue has seen many rock greats driving the angst-ridden young crowd to an unbelievable high. Celebrity rockers have not only performed there, but some, like Brian May and Jimmy Page, have also been a part of the audience! Here, entertainment is guaranteed.
