It is always good to enjoy a night out seeing a live band or a performance and you don’t have far to go from St Albans. The Watford Colosseum is a venue with an excellent reputation and it has welcomed some of the best acts.
Enjoy a venue with history
The Colosseum opened in 1938 and if you’re looking to enjoy a night out with fantastic sound, this is likely to be one of the best options you can find.
The venue is well known for its clarity of sound, making it the perfect choice for live performances and acoustic sets from some of the biggest names in music.
An indicator of the venue’s sound quality comes in the fact that so many great soundtracks have been recorded at this venue. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and The Sound of Music are just some of the soundtracks that have been recorded at the venue.
The venue has also been referred to as the “leading recording venue in the world” by no less an expert than Julian Lloyd Webber.
Another historical moment for the venue came in 1995. This was the year Pavarotti recorded with the Philharmonia Chorus and the venue has also been used by the BBC of many occasions. When you want to be confident about your night out, this is a venue that won’t let you down.
Rock and pop bands love the venue
There is a great deal to be said for the classical acts and orchestras that perform at the Colosseum but many contemporary bands also play the venue. If you’re looking for a lively night out, there will be plenty of chances to see a great set from one of the best names in rock or pop music.
When you think about bands or performers like Oasis, The Faces, Elton John, Marc Bolan and Genesis, you quickly understand the quality shows the venue has seen. You even have acts like One Direction who have played the venue, making it a choice for all of the family.
The shape and nature of the hall has been described as a “shoebox” which adds to the excitement and sound quality. If one of your favourite acts is coming on tour to the Watford Colosseum, you are sure to have a brilliant night.
The venue has something for everyone
If you are looking for more history, you’ll find that the Compton Organ in the venue is worth checking out. This was refurbished by the local council when the build was spruced up and it looks better than ever.
With an ever changing line-up of acts and performers, there is always a reason to visit the Watford Colosseum.
No matter what sort of music you like, you’ll find that this is a music venue that caters for everyone.
