What’s Up N London: The O2


by Claude Julian | ARCHIVES

The next time you travel to London, England make sure to visit one of London’s most popular venues for smashing entertainment. Since The O2 opened in 2007, transforming the endlessly floundering Millennium Dome in Greenwich into a multi-entertainment centre, it’s relied on the pulling power of one giant superstar after the next. Barbara Streisand, Tina Turner and Bon Jovi have all pitched up to generate whopping sums of money out of their equally aging fans, while guaranteed crowd-pullers such as OMD, Queensrÿche, George Clinton, Sugababes, Pete Bennett and The Love Dogs, Jools Holland, CAKE, Natalie Cole, Delirious?, Aimee Mann, Joss Stone, Youssou N’Dour, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Lucie Silvas, Beverly Knight, The Parlotones, Lloyd Banks, Take That, J. Cole, Fabolous, Trey Songz, Timbaland, Rihanna, Brandy Norwood, Chris Brown, Mikar The Vipar, Peter Andre and the Prince after show parties.

IndigO2 is regularly used as the venue for private and public after show parties for artists that have performed in The O2 Arena. IndigO2 has also hosted the album launch parties for the, Usher and the Eagles and The Q Awards nominations. The NME Awards were hosted at indigO2, 2011 British Comedy Awards was hosted at the indigO2. ITV2 have a regular show called Live@indigO2 featuring artists such as The Zutons, The Enemy, Paul Weller, The Fratellis, The Feeling and The Charlatans. The venue also hosted “An Audience with Bill Clinton“. Comedians among Andy Parsons and Tim Allen performed their shows at the indigO2.

With the completion of The O2, AEG has given London what it has ways needed: a world class entertainment destination. Under our already iconic roof in Greenwich lies a state of the art live music club (indigO2), 11 screen multiplex cinema, exhibition centre (The O2 bubble), an entire street of bars, restaurants and leisure attractions (Entertainment Avenue) and most breathtaking of all – The O2 arena. It is this arena at the heart of the venue which promises to put the capital right at the forefront of the industry. Playing host to the most sought after names in rock, pop and classical music, as well as staging must-see sporting events (including the 2012 Olympics), theatrical productions and shows for all the family… The O2 arena will deliver a truly unbeatable line-up of international stars. The O2 is the first purpose built music venue since the Royal Albert Hall in 1871.

The O2, visually typeset in branding as The O2, is a large entertainment district on the Greenwich peninsula in South East London, England, including an indoor arena, a music club, a Cineworld cinema, an exhibition space, piazzas, bars and restaurants. It was built largely within the former Millennium Dome, a large dome-shaped building built to house an exhibition celebrating the turn of the third millennium; as such, The Dome remains a name in common usage for the venue.

The area is served by North Greenwich tube station, which was opened just before the millennium exhibition, on the Jubilee Line, and by bus routes. Thames Clippers operate a river boat service for London River Services; the present tenants, AEG, purchased Thames Clippers in order to provide river links between central London and The O2. As well as a commuter service, Thames Clippers also operates The O2 Express service.  Don’t hesitate to book The O2 in your travel tour plans to “Jolly Old England!”
