The O2 Arena, within the larger O2 complex, is located in Greenwich, London and is possibly the most famous indoor arena in the United Kingdom, having welcomed an array of well known names from the around the world ever since it opened its doors in 2007. As a result, it is a relatively recent addition to the London scene and despite that it is now the busiest venue arena in the world. But then, when it is welcoming international artists such as Britney Spears and the Bon Jovi, in addition to some of the UK’s most beloved acts like Elton John, Led Zeppelin and Lee Evans, this is to be expected.
Another show that appeared at the O2 in recent years is something well-connected with the West End theatre scene – “The Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert” in October 2010. The show appeared in the 25th year of the show’s appearance in the West End and in addition to another appearance of the show at the Barbican Theatre the same year it marked the first time that a West End show could be seen in three locations in the same city (the other being its official home of the Queen’s Theatre). Some big names were attached to the production, from returning cast members to well known celebrities like Nick Jonas and Matt Lucas.
Prior to the O2, and within it the O2 Arena, the building was known across the world at the Millennium Dome, which housed the Millennium Experience to mark the year 2000. The original site was a controversial project and since those early days it has now blossomed into one of the best places to witness the biggest shows in town. Whether it is the enormous O2 Arena, or the sister venue IndigO2, there is a lot to see at Greenwich’s O2 entertainment complex.
