Welcome to the O2 Academy family

Big news, music fans. We’ve just added three of the country’s most iconic local venues to our O2 Academy family. Say hi to O2 Forum Kentish Town in London, O2 Ritz Manchester and O2 Institute Birmingham.

Like with all the other O2 Academy venues in the UK, if you’re on O2, you’ll get loads of benefits at the gigs you go to – Priority Tickets on sale 48 hours before general sale and fast-track Priority queues plus free cloakroom access and offers on Priority.

To get things going, we’re going to be giving you chances to win tickets to the new venues all week – Monday 12 October to Friday 16 October – just keep an eye on @O2music on Twitter.
