The O2 Shepherds Bush Empire is a famous but relatively small venue for watching bands, We went to see The Fields of the Nephilim on Halloween 2012.
Before going to a match, you go to a pub. It's that simple really!
There you drink, sing songs and chant a lot.
then you walk down the road while chanting on
stop and say hello to a horse. opps, it's a police horse..
then you enter the stadium and try to look sober so they let you in
Then the real fun starts
Woody Grill is not just a Kebab shop, its a Turkish food paradise!! they do a host of different foods to take away or to eat in, There was some lovely legs of Lamb in a tasty looking gravy but on the times we went I had Lamb Kofte Roll because it was delicious,
now i dont want to say that there are other places to get Kebabs and stuff but of course there are quite a lot, and some of them are really good but i will say that this has to be THE Best in Shepherds bush (and they have some others two in Kilburn then one in Willesden, Acton and of course Shepherds Bush
so This maybe the best London?? i dont know but if your near one you really must call in!
Favorite Dish: I would love to try them all just to see if i had a favorite, the lamb Kofte was lovely and Evan said the Falafal was lovely and it all looks bloody gorgeous!
Shepards Bush Empire is only a small venue but is quite a famous place to listen to live music in England. There is a stage area with standing in front of it then one or two balconies with seating, which lends itself to a very compact and personal venue.
I went there to see my all time favourite pop star, Adam Ant. Although it was some years after his main era, 22nd March 1995, he still managed to draw a big crowd. My only regret was not getting tickets for the other nights he played there.
Adam went through all his old hits and some of his newer ones and sounded just like he did in his heyday, but without his make-up. As usual he was accompanied on stage by his guitarist and co-writer, Marco Pironni.
After the concert, I amongst a few others hung around the stage door and managed to meet Adam and Marco, who posed for photo`s, signed autographs and chatted for ages with everyone.
Dress Code: Anything you want.
The Underground is really the overground at Shepherds Bush Market Station.
The station is situated opposite the market.
It is on The Circle and Hamersmith lines. we never had to wait longer than the time it took to get Quarter of a way through a Greggs pasty for the train to come. its only 8 minutes to Paddington and 20 minutes to Euston.
