History of The O2 Arena

When the Millennium Dome was built for a year-long exhibit in 2000, it attracted a lot of controversy for spending excessive public funds on such a short-lived project. When it closed, it seemed the British public was stuck with a giant conspicuous dome whose exhibits were becoming outdated with every passing day.

After speculation it would become a new football stadium, the idea for it to be converted into an entertainment venue was approved and, following extensive indoor building, it reopened its doors in 2007 as the O2 Arena. 

Although most well-known for its megastar concerts that have fans flocking in their tens of thousands, it’s also hosted sports tournaments, popular stand-up comedians, movie premieres, ice skating shows and eye-popping spectacles of all sorts.
