The arena at The O2 truly creates a new benchmark in what both fan and performer can and should expect from a rock or pop concert in the UK. You will only see the world's hottest and most sought after acts on this stage; Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Scissor Sisters, Prince, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Take That… and what a way to enjoy them. With perfect sight-lines from every angle, crystal clear acoustics, obscenely comfy seating, wide concourses between aisles and a huge variety of snack and drink options to enjoy throughout the show. We've even put paid to that excruciatingly painful and frustrating tradition of the “fifty minute queue for the loo” by fitting 548 toilets.

Selected reviews for this venue:
Been to the O2 a few times to see rock / pop concerts. The sound is terrible. At a cost of over £100 per ticket, surely the least that can be expected is decent sound
John Mayer (21/10/13) - Paid good money to hear great music trashed
Just seen John Mayer at the o2. it was a truly awful experience. John Mayer is a talented singer/song writer, His latest album, Born and Raised, is a well-crafted collection of well-written songs. He obviously takes time to create a beautiful sound to accompany touching lyrics. I can only think he must be disappointed his music was made to sound like an angle grinder with a backing track of a lump hammer against concrete thanks to the efforts of the sound engineer and the acoustics at the O2. The dynamics of the music was completely lost. It was just LOUD with the drums over-powering everything. A very expensive and hugely disappointing night out

Rod Stewart (24/09/13) - Brilliant Concert
Rod still producing great vocals with excellent supporting musicians and backing singers together with some of his family. A good mix of old and some new songs. Seats were good considering they were upper level and were facing the stage.
