The queues can be long, but once inside it provides an excellent evening of rock music in a great club setting

I love this venue and have had many great experiences there. I would be giving a higher rating if it wasn't for the poor security and thieves that let it down. I've attended Rock City for gigs and club nights and love it. Great range of performances and music. The lighting and sound is okay and the staff seem nice... More

Rock City is a good venue for seeing your favourite music artists, but it does need a clean up. Floors are sticky and grimy. They could also do with better security, as crowds can get out of control, and we witnessed a few people getting squashed and trampled on.

We drove up from Birmingham, parked in the nearby car park (unfair rates) and walked into the CIty Hall. sticky floors everywhere. We went on the Sunday and it was the last day of a 3 days Fest. Not much merchandise left, so we moved upstairs, it was busy but not packed. We loved Firetribe Brothers and Autograph because the... More
