The 1,200 capacity O2 Academy Liverpool has already established itself as a major player on the UK touring circuit, attracting the same high profile, internationally acclaimed artists already performing at Academy Music Group venues. From rock legends, indie all-stars, cutting edge dance and urban acts, to showcasing the rising talent of the future in the 500 capacity O2 Academy 2 Liverpool, the venue is perfectly positioned, fulfilling AMG’s high ambitions.
Formerly the Lomax site, this 19th century warehouse building at 11-13 Hotham Street, is steeped in musical history. Production complete with top class facilities for both club events and live music, AMG has made the greatest efforts to ensure that its venue is a favourite with artists and audiences alike.
In September 2003, the storming launch night with local heroes Shack, triggered a taste of things to come and a spectacular diary of events. O2 Academy 2 Liverpool supports new underground music and gives local bands inspired by Liverpool’s fantastically vibrant music scene the chance to showcase their talent in a beautifully equipped secondary 500 capacity space.
To further enhance the local nightlife, O2 Academy Liverpool hosts regular club nights to satiate all musical tastes and preferences from EVOL and every Wednesday is home to the ‘Revolution’ alternative and rock night.
In 2008, O2 Academy Liverpool hosted Trevor Nelson’s MTV Awards after party, as well as Perez Hilton’s ‘One Night In Liverpool’.
In December 2007, Deltasonic Records held their Christmas party at the venue in aid of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital featuring an amazing line-up of The Zutons and The Rascals and in 2006, The Coral, The Dead 60’s and Little Flames played live, not to mention a special live appearance from Arctic Monkeys.
