Last Exit Live

The original conception of "Last Exit Live" began in 2003 with the opening of Last Exit Bar & Grill which was tucked away in a small shopping center plaza in Tempe, AZ. Even with its not so prime location the venue quickly established itself as a top spot to see local and touring acts and had the likes of Zac Brown Band, The Gin Blossoms, Candlebox, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, The Format, Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World), Dramarama, Perpetual Groove, US Bombs, The Samples, Authority Zero and many others grace its stage. The venue was sold by its original owners in early 2009 but unfolded under the new ownership later that same year. Shortly after its closing original owner Brannon Kleinlein decided to resurrect the name and opened a booking, promotions, and management company in the name of Last Exit Live and actively continued putting on events & concerts around the Phoenix Metro area. In 2012 the decision was made that Last Exit Live would seek out a new location & property to reestablish itself to its original form as a live music venue. And with that Last Exit Live was reborn as a venue in 2013 with a new location in the historic warehouse district of Downtown Phoenix.
