We saw Rascal Flatts at Shepherds Bush Empire on 11th July.
The building is lovely and has alot of character, however...the seating is uncomfortable (which is understandable due to it's age) and the venue was really hot so take something to fan yourself and wear cool clothing.
The drinks were reasonable and the fact that the venue was hot and seating hard didn't affect us having a good time.

I went to the Shepherds Bush Empire on 21st June to see George Thorogood & The Destroyers. This is about the 4th time I have been there and on every occasion I've had a great time with a great atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks. My favourite venue for smaller gigs.

This is the old BBC theatre and retains much of its charm and character. Helpful staff but limited choice at the bar. Fantastic gig, Max Rabbe is a secret I want to share. To get the full experience you must see him live.

Went to the Blue gig. Level 3 had the most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in. Was invited to the VIP after party on Level 1. I thought it would be swish but it was pretty average.

Hello, we went here to see the last night of Of Monsters and Men. We had a great night. The venue was great, very comfortable. The staff were courteous and friendly.

Overall a very enjoyable evening and we will keep an eye on to see who else if performing.
