- O2 Academy Glasgow opened in March 2003 with a one-off performance by Deacon Blue. A multi-million pound refurbishment restored the venue's beautiful original art deco features and a beautiful, historic building. Well received by both the industry and public alike, O2 Academy Glasgow was hailed a welcome addition, with a vibrant diary of rock, pop, dance and seated comedy events, as well as credible club nights thanks to top quality front-of-house and backstage facilities.Contact Us
