O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire
The O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire is arguably one of the few iconic music venues to become famous for something else: although it opened in 1903 as a variety theatre, between 1953 and 1991 it was the BBC TV Theatre, making it the national cradle of broadcast light entertainment. Since the early 90s it's returned to its roots as a live venue,with a penchant for surprise or warm-up gigs; despite a relatively modest capacity of 2000, the Rolling Stones and Page & Plant have each played here.
The nearest Tube stations are Goldhawk Road (Circle/Hammersmith & City), Shepherd's Bush (Central) and Shepherd's Bush Market (Circle/Hammersmith & City); please note that none of these stations are equipped with lifts. The venue is served by the 72, 207, 220, 260, 283, 295, 607 and N207 buses. The nearest car park is in Westfield Shopping Centre, a few minutes' walk to the north.
- Open since: 1903
