My husband and I took our 3 teenagers, 14, 17 and 19, to the Kaiser Chiefs concert at Rock City. What a great venue, it’s not very big so it feels more intimate. It has 2 bars which are well manned and quickly served drinks....More

Have been visiting and seeing bands since I was 15. Have seen bands all around the world and still would rather see a gig here than anywhere else. Amazing

Best £7.50 ever spent! The decorations were amazing and the swing band (Dat Brass) was super lit. Definitely going to the next Caramello

Blues / Rock at its finest with very good support from Sari Schorr. The sound system and acoustics were really good. Only negative was the floor was sticky underfoot at the rear bar even at the beginning of the night.

Visited in Jan to see Death Cab for Cutie. New floor is definitely an improvement over the old sticky one. Acoustics are brilliant for the venue. Facilitates are fine at the start of the night (obvious the place gets cleaned fully every day) but get...More

At Rock City, wearing a baseball cap (or any head gear) isn't a problem. However, should you decide to venture into the town centre, many places have some sort of dress code for the night-time.

There’s a few seats upstairs at the back but you can’t see the stage from them, aside from that there isn’t. I think if someone is disabled you can phone ahead and they might put a seat at the front upstairs.
