The band are always excellent.- go see them. The promotor sells too many tickets for this venue though and you end up packed in like sardines and can't see a bloody thing

Wonderful gig. I went back in time, danced and sang until I was hoa**e. The band are fantastic - the sound is uncannily like the original. If you live the Smiths, see them.

I loved everything about this experience except the toilets. They were pretty gross and not well looked after.

The Smyths are a great live band and while Meat is Murder isn’t one of my favourite albums, the endless hits - Ask being the highlight - performed with such verve and vigour more than made up for it. An enjoyable night; if you’re into nostalgia, go see, you won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful to be able to experience the songs live, singing and dancing with others who loved them and sharing memories of what they meant to us at the time - the band did a great job. Sad that the venue still using single use plastic cups - please could Skiddle help reduce carbon footprint by working with all venues to provide reusables, sharing the experience of those that already do.

The band were excellent but we couldn’t see them as the venue was too small. The 02 was awful, toilet floor feels like you’ll fall through it and really needs a face lift!

Outstanding, musically as close to the real thing as you'll get, plus great vibe. A real love-in between band and punters on the night

Review of The Smyths - Meat Is Murder 35th Anniversary Tour

It was just a brilliant night all round . I was with 3 friends who had a great night too. I have to say The Smyths were fantastic the best tribute band I’ve ever seen so cant wait to next year when they are back there.

The Smyths were fantastic, as always, but the reason I only gave the venue 3 stars is the toilets - downstairs only 3 out of 7 working and they were absolutely disgusting! Upstairs were better but the loo roll holder fell on my head whilst I peed on one occasion - I’m laughing now but it was quite painful at the time!!

Impressive tribute band with clearly a loyal following.First tribure band I've ever seen but lead singer appearance,voice and mannerisms very like Morrissey! I decided to go up in the gallery at 02 Academy so view limited unless you near front but I was!An enjoyable night.

A thoroughly enjoyable night. The Smyth's were on good form, despite some musical fails, but that is live music for you. The venue is small, but packs a good sonic punch. There is plenty of room to cram everyone into. It has good facilities and the staff are helpful.Naturally, I will be returning again.
