We Love O2 ABC Glasgow
O2 ABC Glasgow is an important cultural site in the city, with an exciting and long history that has seen the venue entertaining audiences for almost 150 years. With a glorious Art Deco façade, stunning 19th century steelwork and two-metre mirror ball in the main auditorium, it is one of Glasgow’s most iconic and respected venues and has made a huge contribution to the live music scene. It hasn’t always been a music venue and O2 ABC Glasgow has housed all-manner of interesting spectacles, from a diorama to an ice skating palace, circus, dancehall and a cinema, until 2005 when it became the place that we know and love today.
Averaging over 400 events annually, O2 ABC Glasgow has been responsible for some unforgettable live performances over the years, welcoming both international artists and rising stars through its doors including Adele, Ed Sheeran, Chvrches, Sam Smith, Bruno Mars, London Grammar, Royal Blood, Kasabian, Florence and the Machine, Gregory Porter and Bombay Bicycle Club. It’s also become well known for its regular club nights, especially the legendary Love Music, which has kept Glasgow’s night owls dancing since 2005 with an explosive mix of indie, electro, soul and rock.
