Situated in a 19th century warehouse Liverpool's O2 Academy was once home to the fiercely independent and much loved music venue Lomax. The venue consists of two performances spaces: the larger O2 Academy1 for the major international acts and a smaller O2 Academy2 for local talent. In some cases local and international combine, as when Paul McCartney played a homecoming show here in 2010.

Lime Street station is a couple of blocks to the south, and there are bus stops in London Road and Lime Street to the north and west. Note that ticket sales on the door on the night are cash only.

  • Open since: 2003
