The Cockpit Has Confirmed Its Permanent Closure, Here’s Five Venues We Wish Hadn’t Closed

In light of the news of The Cockpit’s closure, HTF look back on five venues we wish never closed.

4. Astoria, London

A venue that holds a large place in our hearts is London’s Astoria. Located near Tottenham Court Road, the venue was closed down in 2009 to make way for London’s new Crossrail system. Although a grand scale event was planned to give the venue a well-deserved send-off, it never quite materialised.

Bands that have performed at Astoria include Slipknot, Finch, System Of A Down and Nirvana to name but a few.
