A Category B-listed art deco building, The Classic Grand in Glasgow is one of Scotland’s most prestigious live music and entertainment venues. Originally constructed circa 1860 as a commercial warehouse, the 5-storey Classic Grand was converted into a 750-seater cinema in 1915, going through various iterations before finally closing as a cinema chain in 1992. The building briefly operated as an amusement arcade and was badly damaged in a fire in 2001 before it was finally renovated and re-opened as a live venue. The Classic Grand now plays host to a wide variety of artists, both local and internationally renowned. Just some of the famous acts to have passed through the doors of the Classic Grand include Adele, Grandmaster Flash and Stereophonics, along with DJs such as Dash Berlin and Gareth Emery. Comedians and touring club nights are also known to stop by the venue. See all upcoming events at the Classic Grand below.
