The Usher Hall can trace its roots back to the end of the 19th century when wealthy brewer Andrew Usher made a generous donation to the city to create the venue, which opened in 1914.

On Thursday it was hosting Rumours of Fleetwood Mac, described as “the world’s finest tribute” to the band, and “personally endorsed” by the original group’s founding member Mick Fleetwood.
