The Beatles and many other prominent Merseyside acts, played at the Cavern Club on Matthew Street in Liverpool’s city centre. The Cavern Club has an excellent programme of live music with bands playing here most nights of the week including their own Beatles tribute band.

The original Cavern Club opened at 10 Mathew Street in 1957, originally as a jazz club, and The Beatles played 292 gigs there between 1961 and 1963. Other bands that have performed here include The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, The Hollies, The Kinks, Queen and The Who.

The Cavern Club closed in 1973 as the Merseyrail underground rail line was being built and the club’s basement was in the way. Soon afterwards, another live music venue, the Revolution Club, opened across the road at 7 Mathew Street and in 1984 was rebuilt to resemble the original as closely as possible using bricks from the original Cavern Club. Since reopening, the new Cavern Club has seen the likes of Paul McCartney, Adele, the Arctic Monkeys, Travis and Oasis perform there.

For most visitors, the club’s most popular band is the Cavern Club Beatles. The Cavern Club’s own Beatles tribute band which plays at least two days per week, three days during summer.
