Shocking news.  Sheffield the Home of Football and the Home of Music in a log of people's eyes.

This place is part of the City's Heritage now let's see if the Council have the balls to step in, if they can.

How can the council do anything when it is a private landlord that owns the lease

The council cause this. 

They are absolutely rotten and should support hospitality and entertainment businesses like The Leadmill, in the same way other councils do.

 

Sheffield is decades behind Manchester

Was thinking along the lines of the Council having the influence to oppose any sale unless the future use was for a music venue if they have the power to do this.

The guy who owns the building also owns other music venues so not sure what his motives are.

All the best clubs are rough round the edges...stink a bit and have an air of menace about em.....otherwise we'd all be watching some shite like Sam fucking Fender in an air-conditioned Universal Studios type venue full of fucking Adele and Ed twattin Sheeran fans.....surrounded by people with glitter stuck on their fucking faces and flower bastard garlands....

Keep it real!

It sounds like you know a suspicious amount about Ed Sheeran fans, glittery faces and flower garlands.  C'mon, confess!   :classic_biggrin:

Now saying that the Electric Group (?) who own the Leadmill have said there's no intention of closing down the building and it will continue as a venue...

They have said that there could be a change in the people that run it...

The people who run it are the ones who own the rites to the Leadmill name.

As already said, it'll become a soulless pop world palace. It'll die on its arse within three years and give the landlords the opportunity to turn it into student accommodation.

It's a real shame....I know society has changed a hell of a lot from when I used to go clubs/venues for club nights and gigs etc. on a regular basis but the whole scene seems to have become sanitised and plastic.....on the occasions when I've been to Leadmill or other venues around the country for a gig in the last few years (pre and post pandemic)....I've noticed a complete lack of spontaneity....you used to get people trying to climb the speaker mounts or rush the stage etc......now the audience tut when people start really getting into it......plus anyone with glitter on their faces over the age of 12 should be shot....on sight....no mercy.....and if anyone thinks Ed bastard Sheeran or Sam twattin Fender are the height of guitar cool....they should be rounded up and lobbed off the nearest cliff.....

He ought to be with that name!

God knows MPB i would have been losing my marbles in a cellar underneath the Caribbean restaurant on London Road at the time.

I know they supported the Clint Boon Experience at one point and he spent a week with the Stone Roses on their Second Coming tour
