For over three decades, the Barbican Centre has been a bastion of the performing arts. Its uncompromising, ultra-modern setting amidst a so-called concrete jungle makes it a distinctive centre for the best artists, actors, musicians, performers and authors of the postmodern era. Even as you read these words, Barbican Hall London tickets are flying off the virtual shelves at StubHub - miss them, and you'll miss out!
"Hot potato, orchestra stalls..."
As one of the most revered London theatre venues, the Barbican never wants for high quality shows and productions. During the autumn of 2018, tickets for Shakespearean classic Macbeth dominated the venue on StubHub - and for good reason! Penned by a dying William Shakespeare in 1606, it is an eternally popular tale of one man's lust for power, which culminates in cold-blooded regicide and a series of gruesome murders that eventually prove to be his downfall. Such is the impact of the tragedy that the more superstitious of thespians fear to speak the name "Macbeth" out loud, instead opting to call it "The Scottish Play". It has been so successful at this venue that future performances are inevitable, and so too are appearances from some popular musicians in action today. 2018 also saw blues singer Joan Armatrading hit the stage here, with her career now about to go into a fifth decade. With the approach of Christmas in 2018, the Barbican would also host the EFG London Jazz Festival. Ever since the 1970s, this has been a seminal event that has served to unite people from a wide variety of backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicities and tastes through the power of music. This event, too, is a hot sell when available!
Barbican Hall London: amongst the greatest London theatre venues
Built within the Barbican housing estate, a visit to this hall is as impressive as it gets. As the proud holder of Barbican Hall London tickets walks to it, there is a very real feeling of creativity - the same feeling that inspired much of performances' most essential components, such as dance moves learned on the street or in a local youth centre, or music lyrics penned within a cramped council flat by an uncut diamond of an artist on the breadline. As is the case with other London venues, such as Electric Brixton, all these feelings contribute to the viewing experience long before a theatregoer steps over the Barbican's hallowed threshold. 1994 was a crucial year for the Barbican in terms of performance quality, with an acoustic redevelopment of the concert hall enhancing the listening experience. Then, in 2001 - less than twenty years after first opening its doors - the venue became a Grade II listed building, granting it an extra degree of prestige. The future of the locale has never been brighter, making now the best time to buy and sell Barbican Hall London tickets on StubHub!
