AMG’s venue assets in the Capital covers the perfect range of sites to facilitate any event from the 250 capacity O2 Academy 2 Islington, the 800 capacity O2 Academy Islington, 2,000 capacity O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire to the 4,921 capacity O2 Academy Brixton, assuring promoters that AMG can present bands at all levels of success, genre, vibe and orientation to music lovers in London.
Selected reviews for this venue:
Small and intimate - good position almost guaranteed...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Rich Robinson (19/11/14) - Marvellous!
A real privilege really to be watching the former Black Crowe in what are really quite small and intimate venues as he begins to build a solo following in Europe promoting his recent (excellent) solo recordings Ceaseless Sight and Through a Crooked Sun. The wonderful guitar and slide are well known by all who followed The Crowes and the songwriting is still extremely well varied, strong, bluesy and up there with Keith Richards at his peak (REALLY!). Expect really interesting covers to be thrown in the mix as tributes to influences such as Eric Clapton, Blind Faith and early Fleetwood Mac. Check out standout track Hey Fear as a rich introduction. A wonderfully understated concert.
Club De Fromage (18/08/14) - Quality Night
Loads of great tunes. Some quality indie stuff and golden oldies. Everyone just wanted to have fun, all dressed up. Really nice change from nightclubs full of people posing for photos. Best club night in London I reckon.
Sebastian Bach (14/07/14) - the best concert of my life
Ive been a Skid Row fan since my teens, thats more than 20 years ago. I have never ever had a chance to see them live, so when I was looking though the website for a different ticket for a friend, I saw Sebastian Bach is coming to London. It was a great venue, not too big and Sebastian Bach connection with us, the audience was exceptional! He played all the big hits, some new songs and was ever so funny! Great show, I hope to see him again!
