The O2 Academy Liverpool (formerly the Carling Academy Liverpool) is a music venue in London Road, Liverpool, that is run by the Academy Music Group.
On 6 November 2008, it was announced that Telefónica Europe (owners of the O2 Network in the UK) had become the new sponsor of all Academy venues, in a deal with music promotor Live Nation. The deal, which lasts for five years, sees all venues rebranded "The O2 Academy", in line with Telefónica's purchase of the Millenium Dome (now The O2).
O2 Academy Liverpool launched with local heroes Shack and quickly made a fantastic names for itself, thanks to its unique warehouse feel and secondary stand-alone venue, O2 Academy 2 Liverpool, that not only offers great diversity for club nights but also acts as a showcase forum for unsigned talent from the surrounding areas and a platform for new bands on national tours. Since opening, fans have got up close and personal with artists on their rise to the top.
