Not sure about legendary, but The Blues Saloon in St. Paul MN has hosted artists such as Long John Baldry, John Lee Hooker, Albert King and Etta James.....

Yeah, 20,000 to see Led Zeppelin. I'm looking for much smaller venues/theatre's/clubs. Hence no Wembley, Madison Square Garden etc etc etc.

Perhaps Blueberry Hill in St. Louis? Take a trip there and you'll find memorabilia from countless musicians across the generations, plus I think Chuck Berry still plays one show a month there.

Thanks for the suggestion but my search indicated the Chuck Berry gigs are the main claim for the purpose of this list. Maybe some jazz clubs that were around since the 50's etc.
