Venue Guide

About O2 Academy Leeds.

Tickets for Leeds Academy gigs can be found on our Leeds Gig Tickets site.

The O2 Leeds Academy venue is the site of the legendary Town & Country Club, which operated between 1992 and 2000, playing host to many high profile acts including Blur, INXS, Mark Knopfler and The Stone Roses.

In more recent years (2001-2004), the site traded as First Leisure's Creation nightclub.

The Academy Leeds venue opened in October 2008 and was subsequently renamed to the O2 Academy Leeds.

The venue has a capacity of 2,800 split between the main room (2,300) and the balcony (500). The first gig held at the Leeds Academy was Kaiser Chiefs on 8th October [review].
