O2 Academy Newcastle. Branded as The Carling Academy in July 2005. The O2 Academy Newcastle (formerly the Carling Academy Newcastle) is a music venue in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It was opened on October 14, 2005 to an evening headlined by Sunderland band The Futureheads. The venue was converted from a bingo hall in the summer of 2005 at a cost of four million pounds. Its two-level auditorium has a capacity of almost 2,000 (standing and seating). The venue is operated by the Academy Music Group and sponsored by network operator O2. The venue was formerly known as "Carling Academy Newcastle", being rebranded following a multi-million pound deal between O2 and music promotor Live Nation. There is also a smaller venue dubbed O2 Academy Newcastle 2. This venue is used for lesser known and up-and-coming acts. The smaller venue has a capacity of 400.

Bulletproof has featured live club sets from Kasabian, Bloc Party, Maxïmo Park and Hard-Fi among others. Sponsorship 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 promoter 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).[1] Controversies In November 2005 an Ian Brown concert was halted 3 songs into his set after event management noticed a 'strange dip' in the floor. The academy was shut for a brief period whilst work was carried out to make sure the floor didn't collapse.[2] References ^ Sweney, Mark (2008-11-06). "O2 to sponsor Academy music venues".
