London Calling!

One thing I love about living in London is the fab opportunities there are to see so many of my favourite bands live. Since I moved here 13 years ago I have been to see quite an eclectic bunch:
  • Steps, 
  • Terrorvision, 
  • Marylin Manson, 
  • Bush, 
  • Stone Temple Pilots
  • Scissor Sisters
  • Trucker Diablo, 
  • My Chemical Romance,
  • Linkin Park, 
  • Enter Shakiri 

I am going to see Inspiral Carpets and Slipknot over the next few months - to say I am excited is an understatement.  One band that is coming up to headline at the O2 Arena where you buy Basement Jaxx Tickets, a band I had the opportunity to see when I first moved to London and one I would recommend seeing to anyone, just get your tickets quickly - or treat someone for Christmas!

If you son't know London that well, you will probably have heard of The O2 Arena which is situated in Greenwich, formerly known as the Millennium dome, it has undergone quite a transformation and is a brilliant venue to visit, even if there isn't something on that you would like to see. Situated right outside the North Greenwich tube station, on the Jubilee Line it is one venue you won't have trouble spotting. 

Most of the bands I have been to see have been playing at the O2 Arena here in London which is not only a huge venue for music but it also has a lot of places to eat and drink, so you have the opportunity to make a day, afternoon or evening of it, there is literally something for everyone regardless of your age. 

If you like Bowling there is Brooklyn Bowl, then Cineworld if you fancy watching a film, Sky Studios where you can go behind the scenes. Read the news and see how TV is made or if you fancy doing something a little bit different altogether you can Climb over the iconic roof and see the London skyline from the top of the Arena. Add all of that to the 35 food and drink venues, you have the makings of a great opportunity to hand.

Have you ever been to the O2 Arena?

  1. I've never been to the O2 arena been to London many times and have always fancied a concert or performance. Never realised there was other things to do there. Whats it like to get there?

  2. Ohhh far too busy and noisy for me but glad you enjoy seeing bands.

  3. I've actually never been to the O2 arena. It's a shame it's not closer to me as they have some great concerrts

  4. I love going to see live bands!!! :D haven't been in london but amsterdam is my big go-to podium, I think the last non-festival concert was nightwish! :)
    Alice | Alice's Beauty Madness

  5. I've never been to a concert in my life! Hope you enjoy the concerts you're due to go to :)

  6. I am looking forward to both events we have coming up, Bush were amazing!

  7. That is a mixed bunch! I've seen quite a few over the years, but the most recent trip to the O2 was to take my son to see Ant and Dec Live - he absolutely loved it (but it wasn't really rock and roll!)

  8. I've never been to the 02 I did see Basement Jaxx support Robbie Williams a few years back though and they were pretty good! I have a mixed taste in music too and was gutted I didn't have money to buy Mcbusted tickets the other week and relive my teenage years!

  9. I've never been to the O2, though I've definitely heard of it! You've seen some great bands perform live there, I'm glad I'm not the only one with rather eclectic taste in concerts! :)

  10. Oh I adore the Inspirals and have seen them a lot in the past. I would love to see Basement Jaxx

  11. I've never been to the O2 but the line up sounds fantastic and I hope you have a really great time :)


  12. I've been to the 02 to see Glee before - we had an exec box and it was a brilliant night. The 02 is a great venue x x

  13. I have always wanted to go to the 02 Arena I usually go to NEC Birmingham.


  14. I would love to see a concert at the O2 - we have seen disney on ice there and we want to do the skywalk too

  15. Have fun! :) I haven't seen a concert a long time! Last one I saw was Madonna and it was when I lived in Belgium.

    Pink Frenzy

  16. That's pretty cool that you've seen quite the range of performances! I've never been to the O2 Arena myself, but hopefully one day I will :)

  17. I would llove to see some live music at the O2, I bet it's an amazing venue!

  18. Oh it looks amazing!! :D

  19. I have never been to the O2. You are certainly making the most of the opportunities that living in London gives you.

  20. I've taken Austin to the cinema at the O2 - it's a good place for kids, as the restaurants are very child-friendly too.
