About O2 Academy Leeds

After a successful stint as a cinema and social club, it became the Town and Country Club in 1992. Blur, INXS, Primal Scream, Suede and The Stone Roses all appeared at the venue.

At the turn of the millennium, it was the end of an era for the Town and Country Club. Following a refurbishment in 2001, it entered a new phase as the night club, Creation.

In 2008, it became the O2 Academy Leeds, introducing itself to the city with a show from Kaiser Chiefs and DJ set from Utah Saints.

The monumental launch night was just the start. An exceptional list of acts followed with performances from Foals, Last Shadow Puppets, Spiritualized and Elbow.

After becoming part of the Academy Music Group, it continued to raise the bar with live shows from Biffy Clyro, The Killers, Kasabian, Courteeners, Hot Chip and Slash. It has also built a reputation for club events, bringing international DJs Fatboy Slim and Deadmau5 to the stage, while creating and turning Projekt into the biggest weekly nightclub in the city.
