Description: The Halfmoon has hosted live music since 1963, with occassional performances dating back as far as the 1920s. From The Rolling Stones to Kasabian, Kate Bush to Eric Clapton.

U2 played here four times during their first UK visit, which included their first ever sell-out gig. Other memorable gigs at the Halfmoon include KD Lang's first UK appearance, Kate Bush's first ever public performance and a surprise appearance by Nick Cave.
