KOKO is a popular Camden venue featuring regular club nights and live music. Following an extensive refurbishment the venue, originally Camden Palace, was transformed with plush decor and a trendy cabaret feel. The iconic London venue draws 400,000 music lovers and partygoers annually to see iconic artists such as Prince and Madonna. A 100 year old Grade II* listed building this former Victorian theatre has enjoyed a rich cultural history. Past performing alumni include Charlie Chaplin, The Goons (who broadcast their radio show from here in the 1950s), The Sex Pistols and The Clash.

This was my Uriah Heep gig number 55 and it turned out to be amongst the best ever! Great audience, great venue, excellent service and a Heep who had a great day.
Uriah Heep (10/03/14) - Amazing!
The gig was GREAT! Uriah Heep still has it and they proved theyre still rocking on strong, and the sample of the new album seems quite promising indeed. It was great that they were also communicating with the fans during the show and also at the pub afterwards. I love those guys, theyre great!
