12 St Thomas St, Bristol, UK
Bio: The Fleece needs no introduction for anyone who knows anything about music in Bristol. This legendary venue has hosted gigs by the likes of Oasis, Radiohead, Coldplay, Jeff Buckley, The Killers, Amy Winehouse, Killing Joke and The Verve. A big square open room with a high stage and a massive bar all along the far wall mean this venue has one of the best sight lines for a gig of it's size anywhere in the UK. The PA is awesome and the lighting rig has recently had a £10k re-fit since new owners, The Blue Aeroplanes acquired the lease in May 2010.
