O2 Apollo Manchester is a concert venue in Ardwick Green, Manchester. It has a capacity of 3,500 and was originally designed for use as a cinema and variety hall. The building is in an art deco style and was opened by famous actress Margaret Lockwood in 1938. The O2 Apollo Manchester is a venue that now specialises in music events but also hosts a number of other cultural events throughout the year.

Designed by Peter Cummings, Alex Irvine and R. Gillespie Williams, the building features a white terracotta façade in an art deco style. The building is a classic example of a cinema that was constructed to accommodate for the cinema craze in the 1930s. In fact, it wasn’t until the 1970s that the venue stopped presenting films and started to focus on popular-music concerts.

In recent years, the O2 Apollo Manchester is under the operational management of Live Nation, a major live entertainment company. The venue is part of a number across the country which host UK tours for some of the biggest music acts in the world. Many of these venues, including the O2 Apollo Manchester, draw some of the biggest crowds for localised music concerts.
