Standing proudly on the Greenwich Peninsula in south-east of London, lies the enormous, multi-purpose venue, the O2 Arena. After the Manchester Arena, the O2 boasts the second-highest seating capacity of any indoor seating venue in the UK and attracts huge variety of international names in music, shows, sporting events, comedy circus and other unique productions. For example, the O2 has welcomed the likes of comedian Chris Rock, Russel Brand, Russell Howard, Celine Dion, Ariana Grande, Cirque du Soleil, Keane, C2C: Country to Country, National Hockey League Contests, NBA exhibition matches, Commonwealth Boxing Lightweight title fight, Mamma Mia! The Party, Bon Jovi, the Spice Girls, Muse, Take That, Prince Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Jay Z, Noel Gallagher, Rod Stewart and many more. The O2 arena has also hosted extremely large scale events such as the BRITS and huge conferences.  

  

A huge, impressive dome structure next to the river Thames, the O2 Arena has also become a popular tourist attraction; it is possible to climb it and enjoy incredible views of London. During the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, the venue was used for gymnastics, basketball finals and wheelchair basketball competitions but was named the North Greenwich Arena.  The venue is excellent for concerts as it boasts state-of-the art technology which allows it to create extraordinary special effects and the ultimate music experience. As the name suggests, the venues primary sponsor is the telecommunications company the O2, which is a subsidiary of Spain’s Telefonica.

London O2 Arena Capacity and Seating

The London O2 Arena is a flexible venue space and can seat from 1,500 guests to 15,000. Depending on the event, the size of the venue will vary. For example, gigs will have a large standing area on the floor near the stage whereas for sporting events, the space is completely different. The London O2 arena can also be modified so that it is an ice rink and a basketball court, like it was for the London Olympics. 

 

Yet for many events, especially live music, the large dome shaped space and the floor is typically divided into nine rectangular blocks. Then the upper tier is divided into 22 blocks, where there are many seats far away from the stage so the audience ends up watching the show on the big screen instead.

The London O2 Arena

Originally on the site of the former Millennium Dome, the large, Dome shaped space of the London O2 Arena was an exhibition house to celebrate the turn of the third millennium and was called ‘the Millennium Experience’. Following the closure of the Millennium Experience at the end of 2000,  the Dome was leased to Meridian Delta Ltd, so that it could be redeveloped into an entertainment complex. Construction for the arena began in 2003 and was then finished in 2007. In 2004, the dome was used for the annual Crisis Open Christmas, which is organsied by the homelessness charity, Crisis. The arena has been designed architecturally so that it can reduce echoing, which is a common problem among large music venues  in London.
