02 Academy Upcoming Events

March 27, 2011 at 5:56 pm , by Blue

March is an exciting month at the O2 Academy in Leeds but as the venue is so popular most of the tickets for all of the events have sold out.  The Stranglers, Primal Scream and others can all expect a full house, showing just how popular the O2 Academy is in Leeds.  The popularity of events in Leeds is all down to the city being a gem in the North of England.  We have therefore decided to look a little further ahead to some of the highlights of the O2’s calendar of events for this year.

April

Propaganda:  every Saturday night throughout April is Propaganda Night focusing on the best in Indie from 11.00pm – 3.30am.

Friday 29th – Sunday 1st May: Live at Leeds

The O2 Academy will again host the Live at Leeds event.  This is a truly Leeds city centre music festival and will feature the best musical talent from the region and some national acts too.

Tickets are still available

Saturday 16th: Big Country

The Scottish 80’s band has reformed to play a 30th anniversary tour.  Let’s hope they do the great tracks including Big Country and others from the early ‘The Crossing’ and ‘Steeltown’ classic albums. Tickets are still available.

Looking ahead to July a couple of exciting gigs are on the events calendar including:

July

Tuesday 12th: Eels

Eels return to perform for the first time since releasing the third and final album in their trilogy Hombre Lobo, End Times and Tomorrow Morning.  The band are acclaimed in music circles including great testimony for the Hombre Lobo album as the New York Times Critics Choice.

Tickets are still available.

Wednesday 13th: Bright Eyes

The great US Indie/folk band play their first live gig in over three years – right here in Leeds following the launch of their album in February 2011 – The Peoples Key.

Tickets are still available.

The O2 Academy in Leeds is a superb venue for live music and as previously mentioned is extremely popular – we always know when a big name is playing at the O2 – as the serviced apartments get booked up quickly too.  As the apartments are a great central place to stay it is a good idea to look ahead in the events calendar at the different Leeds venues so that a festival or a concert weekend can be arranged well in advance including advance booking of superb accommodation.
