Bradford Live announces first round of acts as part of 2024 launch season

How exciting.

The long-awaited opening of a new entertainment venue in Bradford will see tributes to two music greats take to the stage.

Bradford Live will be opening in the old Odeon building on Godwin Street which closed in 2000 and has been threatened with demolition ever since.

But after a grassroots campaign to save it, developer Bradford Live took on the challenge in 2012 and reached an agreement with NEC Group as operator in 2017.

Work has been ongoing to transform the derelict site to an impressive 3,800 capacity music venue.

The new entertainment venue will be purpose built for not only music, but for comedy, sport and family orientated events.

The aim is to create a cultural hub for the region that will celebrate the city whilst ensuring world-class event spaces for generations to come, expecting to host a whopping 300,000 visitors per year.

Scheduled to open this autumn, two opening acts have been announced as part of the launch.

Thank you for the Music, The Ultimate Tribute to Abba and Legend: The Music of Bob Marley will perform at Bradford Live in November.

Thank you for the Music will perform on Friday 8 November and Legend: The Music of Bob Marley will perform on Friday 29 November 2024.

You can sign-up to pre-sale tickets here or alternatively, general sale tickets will go live at 10am this Friday 19 January.
