venue info

In March 2003, AMG expanded to Scotland with O2 Academy Glasgow, following a multi-million pound development of the former New Bedford Cinema. The venue opened to a rapturous response, following a one-off performance by legendary Scottish band; Deacon Blue.


The New Bedford originally opened in 1921 as a cinema theatre venue and is now a magnificent 2,500 capacity live music venue, which retains the grandeur of the art deco period including original ceiling features, balcony and boxes, proscenium arch around the stage, paneling on the stairwell; as well as the original façade.


The venue houses a state of the art sound and lighting system and a fully flexible capacity of 2,550 for full building usage to cater for live gigs and cutting edge dance events and club nights. The design emulates the success of AMG’s other venues, allowing O2 Academy Glasgow the option of converting to a short hall format for shows requiring a smaller 1,100 capacity that is production complete or alternatively, a fully seated configuration.


More recently, AMG configured a second 250 capacity venue, O2 Academy2 Glasgow, for newer, emerging artists.
