The Metro Theatre is one of Sydney's most reputable rock and alternative music venues. It hosts local and international artists in the genres of pop, punk, rock, and hip hop.
The sound quality is great and there is a choice of seating or braving the mosh pit at the front. This venue has a strong history with youth culture, and local musicians often measure their success by a performance at the Metro, even if they are the supporting act. The venue also supports under-age gigs, especially during the day time, with over-18 gigs at night. If you pass by you will frequently see excited crowds lining up outside.
The box office is tucked away in the adjoining alley, and security for the venue is usually very tight to ensure it maintains a good reputation. When heading to a performance here, ensure you arrive early for a good spot. If heading out afterwards, you'll have the whole city to explore, with pubs
, clubs and bars available on nearby George Street. A bus, train
or taxi to Town Hall
will get you there and back safely.
Address: 624 George Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000.
