ABC to O2

A quick update, more articles to come later today…

AMG, the Academy Music Group, have taken over the ABC on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow. The move from previous organisers Regular Music to the owners of the O2 Academy (formally the Carling Academy, Glasgow) will result in a few changes to the bar menu, with more of the affiliated beverages available, but primarily in an expansion of the number gigs held each year. This summer should see a dramatic increase in the number of concerts happening at the ABC. The usual pattern has been for term time busyness with a quieter summer schedule. The ABC is known for its popular student appealing club nights on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays spread over its five bars, three dance spaces and two good sized stages. AMG plan to bring more live music to the venue. So far these are the only changes being made with the current staff remaining in place and no name or design changes planned at yet.
Music giants and UK events leaders AMG currently have over 20 venues ranging from a 400 to 4500 capacity around the country.
