Manchester is a music city. There are more live music shows in this city than anywhere else in the country. No wonder it has recently been crowned the UK’s best for live music. Join your guide to explore the musical legacy intertwined with industrial roots.
During the tour, you will visit legendary music spots such as the Free Trade Hall where the Sex Pistols held their infamous gig. You may recognize the location from one of the album covers of The Smiths, the Sex Pistols inspired them as well as members of Joy Division, the Buzzcocks, and Salford Lads’ Club with this famous performance.
Your guide will then lead you to a subterranean bar that was once a public bathroom which somehow became the inspiration for an Elbow song. Finally, you will head to the upcoming Northern Quarter to visit Piccadilly Records to flip through some vinyl.
