My favourite venue in Manchester. Love the size, the slight grumpiness and how local it is to us etc. Some of the staff are a bit little hitler though. So it's a standing gig in the stalls, too many people obviously oversold, so you have...More

Been to the Apollo many times over the years for music and comedy gigs. It is my favourite comedy venue in Manchester due to the intimate nature. Even though it's quite big, you get a good view from all round the venue. It's not too...More

Saw my first concert here! Semi intimate, looks a bit shabby but has hosted many, many bands. A decent venue if your outfit of choice plays here.

Thank you for hosting the Nashville concert after the tragic events which lead to it being cancelled at the Arena. It was our first concert with the boys and they enjoyed every moment. The Nashville Performers did themselves and everyone proud. Thank you Apollo.
