The O2 Arena is an indoor multi-purpose venue with flexible seating that can seat up to 20,000 spectators making it one of Europe's largest indoor arenas. It was also a venue during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
The O2 is much more than just an arena. There are actually multiple venues located under the huge dome of the O2: indigO2 — an intimate music venue, The O2 bubble — an exhibition space, Entertainment Avenue — an area filled with restaurants and bars which is open day and night, and an impressive 22 screen multiplex theatre.
Entertainment events include concerts, comedy, film, theatre, ice shows, reality TV plus Christmas and New Years Celebrations.
Sporting Events held at the O2 include basketball, boxing, gymnastics, ice hockey, tennis and professional wresting. It was also the venue for Olympic gymnastics and basketball finals during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
With its giant dome and the 11 protruding cranes that support it, the O2 is also a distintive and highly recognizable London landmark.
