The London Troubadour and its legendary performers

Earl's Court, London, United Kingdom

About the tour

The venue was founded in the 1950s revival of coffee houses as centres of London intellectual and artistic life. Earl’s Court, the wild western frontier of bohemian Chelsea, saw a particular concentration of new establishments, the most famous of which was the Troubadour. It was where the satirical magazine, Private Eye was first produced and distributed; where the early 'Ban the Bomb' meetings were held (the precursor to CND) and where the Black Panthers met when they left Paris after the 1968 riots. The Troubadour was the first place where Bob Dylan performed in London. Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Redd Sullivan, Charlie Watts, Sammy Davis Jr.and Jimi Hendrix have all played there and Led Zeppelin used to come and jam there after their Earl’s Court gigs. Join me on the Troubadour stage and get a taste of its haunting history as classic Hendrix guitar riffs fill the air.
