The Wedgewood Rooms: and indie live music institution
The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth has been many things in its existence, including a top-notch indie music and stand-up comedy venue. It's been pretty famous for a long time, and is known as one of the oldest cultural landmarks in Southsea. In modern times it's been the place to play for some very famous international bands as well as the cream of the crop of UK indie outfits. At the same time it's become one of the popular comedy clubs in the area, where the stars of stand-up have come to perform. There's always tons to enjoy when you buy or sell Wedgewood Rooms tickets on StubHub.
From a jazz club to the pinnacle of UK indie music
One of the first superstars to appear at the Wedgewood Rooms was Arnold Schwarzenegger, long before he was famous though, when he competed in a nondescript bodybuilding competition there. The venue started life as a ballroom and then morphed into a jazz club when the jazz craze hit the UK, and then went dormant as far as high profile public entertainment was concerned. Overhauled and relaunched in 1992, at the height of Britpop, it has since been the site of many a star turn for some of the biggest indie bands around. It's also established a reputation for breaking local artists in the region, and past line-ups are a mouthwatering catalogue of UK and international indie rock music, having featured the likes of Placebo, Kasabian, Razorlight, Muse and Paloma Faith. Lesser known performers have included such bands as The Murder Capital. Fans have been able to catch some more intimate shows here too, like unplugged gigs from The Rifles and others.

A high-profile stand-up comedy venue in Southsea
Stand-up comedy fans have found a much loved home in Wedgewood Rooms. As its reputation grew thanks to the high profile music gigs, the venue started to put on comedy shows and solo performers as well. They were an immediate success and the place soon started attracting big name performers who realised that it offered a gateway to building their live audiences in the Southsea region. In latter years the elite of UK comedians have trodden the boards here, and audiences have enjoyed a wide range of performers, from Lee Evans to Michael McIntyre and Jo Brand. It has hosted many themed comedy evenings in collaboration with independent theatre companies, which has offered comedy fans the opportunity to see stand-up that is more off the beaten path too. It's the perfect venue for the art form, so if you're a fan, don't hesitate to get yourself some Wedgewood Rooms tickets on StubHub.
