The Carling Academy is a well known live music venue in Glasgow, Scotland. It is situated in the Gorbals area, on Eglington street and is capable of hosting an audience of about two and a half thousand spectators. It is therefore suitable for fairly large concerts and many better known bands often play at the venue. In fact, the Carling Academy is part of a group of live music venues, all under the same Carling Academy brand, which includes venues in Glasgow, Brixton and Birmingham.
The venue is in an impressive location, being housed in the New Bedford Cinema, which has always been a well known building in the city. The building is now more impressive than ever, due the 3 million pound refurbishment project that it underwent prior to opening its doors. If you are in Glasgow and are up for a good concert, then be sure to check out what is playing at the Carling Academy.
