Used to visit years ago for the club nights on a Saturday in my youth. Visited for the first time in years for the architects gig in November and the venue hasn't changed at all. As for most gigs in the main room it was ridiculously packed, really can't understand how this place can hold over 2000, one really good... More

The music was supposed to be r n b in two rooms however one of the r n b rooms wasn't open and we didn't get told this before we paid for our tickets. The other r n b room wasn't this at all. First time I went and I was very disappointed to be honest, only good thing was... More

Too many young people who was rude, danced with vulgarity and dressed very slutty! People who worked there was rude and I expected more from the club but was a waste of time and full of stupid people

The night We went it was the middle of winter the staff got a very large queue into the building very quickly and safely. The gig has access to a cloakroom at a reasonable price (£1.50) at the time and again staff were very quick, We didn't have to wait long on the way out when collecting our coats. Rock... More

Nice looking venue, great atmosphere when inside, absolutely brilliant idea having a balcony. Very sticky floors though and the PA system used isn't as clear as others at different venues. Overall though I had a blast there!

Visited Rock City for a gig a few nights ago. It's a great venue with steps at the back so short people like me can see. The sound quality is amazing. Must also give a special shout out to the paramedics and security staff - someone near me fainted and the staff dealt with it quickly and professionally. Looked like... More

I have been attending gigs at venues like this for 25 years but for some reason never been to Rock City. Saw Super Furry Animals and it was fantastic. Good view wherever you are and easy to get to front if you want to. Beer reasonably priced too. Let's hope it doesn't become an O2.
