O2 Academy Glasgow
The Art Deco majesty of the O2 Academy Glasgow building is a legacy of its former life as the New Bedford Cinema, built in 1932 after the original Bedford Cinema burned down. After spending decades as a Mecca bingo hall, a £3m refurbishment in 2002 converted it into a music venue, the Carling Academy, before it assumed its current name as part of O2's sponsorship deal. It now hosts major touring acts – The Killers sold it out in a record three minutes, and James Brown played his last UK show here – and becomes a comedy club during the Glasgow Comedy Festival.
Glasgow Central Station is a short step across the river, and the nearest Subway is Bridge Street. Eglinton Street bus stops are serviced by routes 3, 4, 4A, 4B, 7B, 29, 38, 38A, 38B, 38C, 38E, 57 and 57A.
