Always enjoy gigs at the O2 a great venue where you feel connected to the stage and the acts. Upstairs balcony is superb for a great view of the band/stage.

I have been to many concert venues of all sizes and can hand on heart say Bristol O2 Academy is by far the worst. We travelled over 3hrs for my partner to watch Skunk Anansie last night for his Birthday and what a disappointment. No...More

After having a recent procedure on my back, I was pessimistic of my chances of standing for the whole gig so I phoned in to see if the venue could help. They said that given the notice I had offered they would be prepared to...More

I love my gigs but am of a certain age where I cant be bothered with the pushing and shoving. This venue was perfect for me. Upstairs you have the option of standing overlooking the band (or looking over someone's shoulder) and there is some...More

Absolute joke, way way too packed, would not go to this venue again for that simple reason - a complete fire hazard, no room to even stand, absolutely shocking!! Cram in the people and not worry about consequences 👎

Came here for the first time to see James Morrison in concert. Really excellent concert venue. Nice, small and intimate. Lots of friendly staff at hand, felt safe and secure as I was on my own. Would come here again.

There are three levels and you need to get to the gig in plenty of time if you want a decent view. We’ve been to a few gigs here and the atmosphere has always been quite flat without much dancing. Perhaps we have been unlucky!...More

My wife and I attended this event last Friday evening. We were fortunate to have an excellent view of the stage. James Morrison was terrific and Etham his warm up singer was also very good. Awesome night.
