Statement 18 June O2 ABC Glasgow
STATEMENT - Monday 18 June 2018
Following the fire at the Glasgow School of Art (GSA), Mackintosh Building on Friday 15 June 2018, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service remain in attendance on Sauchiehall Street and adjoining buildings to O2 ABC Glasgow.
Our venue remains under the control of the emergency services, with whom we are in constant dialogue since the fire at the GSA broke out. Our immediate priority is to our staff and also to the artists and promoters who have events programmed into our diary.
We are working as quickly as possible to move or reschedule forthcoming events to alternative venues in the city with the minimum disruption and prioritise immediate shows taking place.
The messages of support we have received has been incredibly overwhelming and we are grateful to everyone for their understanding and patience at what is a difficult and challenging time, in exceptional and unforeseen circumstances.
At this point in time, we do not have any further comment regarding the future of O2 ABC Glasgow whilst the venue is under the control of the emergency services and we will provide updates when information is available.
All details concerning forthcoming shows will be published on the event pages of our website at www.o2abcglasgow.co.uk and shared to our social media channels. Ticket holders will also be contacted by ticket agents as soon as information is available.
