While 53 Degrees may be shutting its doors in 2015 with no more big gigs or shows for the public – there’s still a fair bit of live music to come.


We’ve taken a look through the listings and there’s a right old mix of some classic rockers, up and coming acts and some acts you’ll remember being played on the radio a lot in 2006 with their one big single.

80s pop legend Gary Numan headlines on Tuesday 1 July, tickets are £26 plus booking fee for tickets to see Numan in the main venue. His most recent release I Am Dust has been well received by critics.

Marking 40 years together The Stranglers bring their iconic sounds to the venue, tickets are already said to be selling well for the show on Sunday 6 July which is £23 plus booking fee.

American metal band Soulfly are in the club on Tuesday 8 July, £15 and then booking fee on top.

Local metal act Carcer City headline the club on Saturday 26 July with support from The Family Ruin, tickets just £4 plus booking fee.

If your name is Kayleigh, you should definitely get yourself along to watch Fish (he of lead singer from Marillion fame) on Tuesday 30 September. It’s £22.50 but his Moveable Feast Tour is a rare chance to see his first show in six years.

The new project from former The Verve guitarist and bassist Nick McCabe and Simon Jones, Black Submarine bring their tour to the 53 Degrees club. On Tuesday 7 October it’s £18 plus booking fee to see them perform their debut album New Shoes.

BBC Radio Six Music man Craig Charles brings the classic Funk N Soul show on tour and he stops off at the 53 Degrees club to serve up funk, soul, motown and more for £10. Starts at 10pm on Saturday 18 October.

Watch a video of Craig DJing last time he was in town, or watch it on YouTube if you’re on our app.

The Sunshine Underground return to 53 Degrees on Wednesday 22 October, they’ve played the club plenty of times before but are at a new stage in their career after parting ways with their management company. It’s £13.50 plus booking fee to see them.

Another act who may as well call 53 home are The Subways. They are a phenomenal force live and this will be a bit of a last hurrah for the venue and its staff as The Subways rock out in the club. Tickets are £10.50 for the show on Saturday 25 October.

The following night and it’s far more chilled for the return of Turin Brakes to the club, £18 to see them play some of their old hits but also showcase new material on Sunday 26 October.

It’s not December without the Lancashire Hotpots performing their annual Christmas show, and they will certainly bring the curtain down with this one. Expect it to be rammed in the main venue as the Hotpots tear it up on Saturday 6 December. Tickets are £13.50.
