The LCR is a live music venue and nightclub situated in on the campus of the University of East Anglia and run by the Union of UEA Students.
As well as attracting some of the world’s top bands, The LCR also plays host to two weekly club nights and a number of special events such as balls, which are held for the University’s student population.
Dating back over 30 years, the LCR has played host to acts such as U2, Manic Street Preachers, Kasabian, Faithless, Stereophonics, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, Coldplay, Robbie Williams who performed his first post-Take That gig on their stage, and many more.
This is an attempt to list all the events that the Students Union organised over the last 50 plus years. I was inspired to research and compile the list following the sudden loss of Nick Rayns in April 2013 (pictured below).
Nick was my friend and colleague for 34 years and, in my opinion, headed the finest gig programme of any Student Union in the country.
I'm aware that the list below doesn't include the hundreds of charity events, Thursday LCRs, Club Retros, Tuesday fancy dress nights, Beat Pharmacy, SkoolDaze, Brighton Rocks, Now 90s, the Other Ones, poetry readings, band competitions, dance Shows and plays. But hopefully some of your highlights and memories are here. To the best of my knowledge everything is correct, but I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has further information.
