Sheffield is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the north! Therefore, it shouldn’t ever be difficult for you to hunt down a night out or two which you’ll remember for years to come. However, nights out don’t always have to begin and end at the clubs. With New Year approaching, many people are looking for fabulous events offering the live music Sheffield loves to host. You could look online and blow your bank balance on big stars doing arena tours – or you could save yourself some serious money and have an even better time at one of the OEC’s many brilliant tribute nights.
Tribute acts and bands really do offer something special. The artists we host at the OEC have spent years honing their craft! It takes a lot of confidence, energy and talent to emulate the best pop stars and musical acts on the planet. That’s why a tribute night could be your perfect chance to let your hair down with family and friends in the New Year. Why not make 2020 a year to remember by taking in one of our celebrated concerts?
Why See a Tribute Act?
The OEC is a multi-purpose events venue which plays host to all sorts of big shows and occasions throughout the year. From our famous Christmas bashes to our private party packages, thousands of people flock to us for laid-back party action in Sheffield. But what is it about our tribute acts which really pulls in the crowds?
A tribute act is more than just a copycat singer or band. It’s a talented artist or talented artists who have taken a lot of time to learn about their favourite singers and groups. The acts we host through the OEC are those which already have a big following across the region, and which offer incredible takes on some of the biggest and best artists of the past few decades.
Seeing a tribute band or singer puts you front and centre in front of some of your favourite stars. Tribute bands such as those paying homage to The Beatles will give you the chance to see the Fab Four live. Sadly, that is impossible to see for real nowadays – and other big legends who have passed on are paid tribute to on a regular basis through our main stage.
Tribute acts offer some of the best live music Sheffield is known for. There are few venues and arenas across the city and county which offer specific tribute slates. Why spend hundreds of pounds sitting up in the heavens when you can get up close and personal with a fantastic live band or singer at a fraction of the cost?
The Perfect Venue
The OEC has fast become the go-to venue for music lovers across Sheffield and beyond. That’s not just because of our tribute nights, but also thanks to our fantastic party packages. We’re proud to offer incredible acoustics, as well as a brilliant sound stage for a wide variety of genres and performers. This makes us one of the most versatile venues and live music brands in the city and wider area.
We take great care to ensure that all our guests have a wonderful time at our tribute nights, too. We offer package deals where you and a group can buy drinks and food upfront no matter how large your party may be. It’s a great way to make sure everyone is fed and watered! While taking in a sumptuous meal and discounted drinks and bubbly, you can take in some fabulous entertainment only a few feet away. There’s never any risk of you missing out on some brilliant music.
We want to make sure that all of our guests have a fantastic choice when it comes to the tribute nights and party occasions we have on offer. It’s our fantastic diversity that really helps to set the OEC apart from the other venues and establishments on offer in Sheffield. Our friendly team is always on the lookout for the best acts and the best ways to welcome visitors to our wonderful club!
Upcoming Guests for 2020
With 2020 just around the corner, it makes sense to start taking a look at who’s on our tribute night calendar for the months to come! Don’t worry, as we are already making sure that our main stage is well-covered in terms of fantastic local and well-established musical talent. For example, we’ll be hosting an amazing tribute to the late, great George Michael at the end of February. What’s more, we’ll be bringing a classic ska party to the masses at the end of March, with a double-header tribute to Bad Manners and Madness, two of the biggest-selling chart acts of the early 1980s.
Speaking of the 1980s, guests at our venue will also be able to take on our spectacular Club 80s night at the end of January. If you prefer going even further back in time, then you are going to want to hold out for our fantastic full-band Motown and Soul experience, lining up at the end of April. Alternatively, if the idea of reliving the heyday of Girl Power in the mid-90s appeals to you, make sure you book in for our Spice Girls Experience towards the end of May.
