The O2 Academy Sheffield was once a city landmark: Roxy's nightclub, site of many a student night out and a long-term venue for the 80s TV show The Hit Man and Her. After teetering on the brink of demolition for years, it was acquired by Academy Music Group in 2007 and now has a small venue in addition to its 2350-capacity auditorium.
Sheffield station is a few minutes' walk away, on the other side of Sheaf Street. Sheffield Coach Station is on adjacent Pond Street, and the venue is located on top of a multi-storey car park.

Indie music from the Scottish singer-songwriter and musician who sold out his first arena tour before he released his first album.
When Lewis Capaldi’s debut single Bruises exploded at the start of 2017 it seemed from an outside perspective to have all the hallmarks of an overnight sensation. How could this 20-year-old with a soul-wrenching voice that sounded like it had been hewn from granite seemingly emerge from nowhere with a song of such emotional depth? A stripped-back and almost painfully raw meditation on love and loss from a writer who seemed like he’d already lived several lives and had the scars to prove it, within weeks it had racked up an astonishing 15 million Spotify plays and topped streaming charts around the world.
