A statement on the Leeds venue The Cockpit website states:
“It is with great regret that we have to announce the permanent closure of the Cockpit. After 20 great years as an integral pillar of the Leeds music scene we have decided that it is no longer viable to deliver you the level of service you deserve with the building in its current condition.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of you who came to watch your favourite bands, danced, stage dived, crowd surfed, found your life partner and gave the Cockpit its reputation as one of the best live music venues in the UK.”
A number of shows originally scheduled at the Cockpit have been moved to Leeds University Union. All original tickets will remain valid. Please find below a comprehensive list of the new upcoming gigs:
