      Description

      The Cavern Liverpool opened its doors to the public in January 1957, and now stands as 'the most famous club in the world.' This title is undoubtedly largely due to the role played by The Cavern Liverpool in the Beatles' rise to fame.

      While most widely noted for its place in the history of British Rock 'n' Roll, The Cavern Liverpool was actually created with the sole intention of showcasing British jazz, which indeed it did. However, the demand for Beat music soon surpassed that for jazz, and so the latter fell to the wayside as what became known as 'the Merseybeat sound' spread like wildfire through the music world - The Cavern Liverpool serving as a breeding ground for the talent behind this distinctive sound.

      It was lunchtime on Tuesday February 21st 1961 when the Beatles made their first appearance at The Cavern Liverpool, having returned from Germany where the group had been honing their skills, creating an identity, and polishing up their act. Local music followers and musicians alike were blown away. The Beatles went on to make almost 300 appearances on The Cavern schedule between '61 and '63, ending their run only once demand to see the group far surpassed the ability of the venue to accommodate those vast numbers of fans.

      Of course, The Beatles aren't the only famous band to have graced the stage at The Cavern Liverpool over the years; Queen, The Kinks, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Travis, Arctic Monkeys, Rod Stewart and Oasis are just a few of the other acts featured on The Cavern schedule in the past.

      Today, The Cavern Liverpool serves as a tourist attraction as much as it does a live music venue, the front room housing the famous stage and back wall which features the names of bands who have performed there previously.
