London Hit List #23 The O2 Arena
The Millennium Dome – Am I the only one who still calls it that? I remember its awkward beginnings as the venue for the ‘Millennium Experience’ (No. I didn’t go.) which then proved rather hard to sell. But its rebranding as the O2 Arena seems to have worked – basically every sort of major event happens at the O2 Arena. Concerts (Taylor Swift, Kylie, and Durran Durran all coming up), boxing, Disney on Ice, comedians, exhibitions… yes, everything. It is a pretty cool venue and has found its place among the most recognizable buildings in London’s skyline.
