O2 Academy Leeds

If music is your religion, this impressive entertainment venue may become your place of worship; its Gothic façade even looks like a church.


One of the city’s most popular venues for music gigs, O2 Academy Leeds is based in the historic Coliseum. This iconic site has long been at the core of the city’s cultural events, having hosted political meetings, variety shows and a circus. Go to see some of your favorite groups and solo artists in this majestic arena. 

Check the schedule online for acclaimed bands performing at the O2 Academy Leeds, where The Killers, Hot Chip and Fatboy Slim have all played. Among other illustrious names that have taken to the stage in this building are The Stone Roses, Blur and Kaiser Chiefs. 

Tribute acts often perform here, evoking nostalgia for our favorite oldies. Laugh all night at a stand-up comedy routine or see a sports event in this packed arena, where live games are streamed. You can choose from seats on the main floor and the upstairs gallery in this rectangular auditorium. 

Enjoy a few drinks and snacks from one of the bars dotted around the arena. Hear about the intriguing history of the venue, which was previously used as a cinema, a bingo hall and a social club. Recognizable by the large rose window on its gothic façade, it was first opened in 1885 by Prince Albert. See the structure at night, when it glows purple.

Book tickets online or at the box office, which opens from noon until late afternoon Monday through Saturday. The venue itself opens for events for a few hours in the evening. Leave coats and bags in the cloakroom. 

The O2 Academy Leeds is beside Leeds General Infirmary in the city center. Walk north from Leeds railway station for around 10 minutes to reach the venue. It is surrounded by a range of attractions, such as Leeds City Museum, the Cathedral of Saint Anne and Leeds Art Gallery.
