The venue made a fantastic first impression with a successful launch week that saw the stage christened by Deacon Blue on 26 March followed by Bryan Ferry and the Sugababes playing in celebration of the doors opening. The Grade B listed building was restored to its former glory, returning much of the original splendour after being closed for 10 years.

The history of the building and the site where O2 Academy Glasgow now stands is both fascinating and tragic. In 1825, on the same spot, was the Eglinton St United Secession Church, until it was converted to The New Bedford Picture House in 1921. It sadly burnt down and was completely destroyed just over ten years later in 1932 but rebuilt and opened on 31 December the same year. It finally closed on 18 July 1973, but it once again re-opened for business a few months later, this time as a Bingo hall until it was closed and boarded up in 1993 until the opening night a decade later.

O2 Academy Glasgow has hosted a diverse programme of events, from music and club nights to comedy, and attracted international musicians and home grown talent to the city. Since the first notes were sung and chords struck on the stage back in 2003, there have been numerous highlights including shows from Belle and Sebastian, The White Stripes, Frankie Boyle, The Prodigy, Motorhead, Foals, Stereophonics and Snoop Dogg.
