The Metro - Sydneys Premier Entertainment Venue In The Heart Of The City
The Metro Theatre has long been Sydney’s leading independent rock venue and has played host to some of the most memorable live gigs Sydney music fans have seen and heard. It is a landmark venue for both international and local acts, being a pivotal breakthrough venue for bands as they break on to the scene.
Steeped in the history of rock n’ roll in Australia, the Metro Theatre has been a milestone in the career of the best local and international acts since the mid-nineties.
Beginning life as a Theatre, the Metro opened with the Sydney Dance Company’s production of Beauty and The Beast, but quickly developed into a hub of live music which continues today.
Some of the acts to grace the Metro stage include Muse, Placebo, The Eels, Alex Lloyd, Damien Rice, Gomez, The Dandy Warhols, Eskimo Joe, John Mayer, Pink, Robbie Williams The Hives and Beth Orton.
With unparalleled sightlines, a friendly atmosphere and a brand new Nexo Alpha sound system recently installed, the Metro continues to be the best live music venue in the centre of the city and an important icon in the history of rock.
