Troubadour is an institution that has hosted many LA “debuts”: in 1968, for Joni Mitchell; in 1969, Neil Diamond; in 1970, Elton John made his Stateside debut; and so it goes on with the Pointer Sisters, Metallica, the legendary Manu Chao, Radiohead and Franz Ferdinand. Since the intimate venue opened its doors in 1957, not only has it helped launch careers of top artists but it’s where albums have been released: No Doubt – Tragic Kingdom; The Killers – Sam’s Town; Rod Stewart – Time; and Coldplay performed a secret show here, debuting five songs from their third album, X&Y. In addition, you can catch great live shows performed by global up-and-coming artists. In 2013, Rolling Stone magazine named Troubadour the second best rock club in America; in 2014, Billboard named it one of the top 5 “must play” venues in the US. It’s a must visit.
