The theatre, which is in the centre of the city, has hosted some of the biggest names in music, including Ronnie James Dio and Queensrche as well as rock titans Iron Butterfly, Molly Hatchet, and KISS. With two halls that can accommodate over 2,000 people each and a cutting-edge sound system, the O2 Academy is guaranteed to deliver an outstanding experience each and every time. Not to mention that there are a number of bars and restaurants inside the arena where you can get something to eat and drink before or after the performance. Not only that, but the O2 Academy is close to the O2 Arena and Angel, as well as Highbury and Islington tube stations, making it simple to see a show at each venue on the same night.
