The Extravaganza at the O2 Arena

The O2 arena is the United Kingdom’s second largest arena and has been considered the world’s busiest arena since the year 2001. Every year the O2 arena hosts a number of special events such as sports events, musical events, church events and other entertainment events.

The construction of the arena was completed between the years of 2003 and 2007. The first performance was held in the same year and was a private gathering for all staff members. On the second day the O2 arena was open to public viewing and the first special event ever conducted was a musical concert.

An interesting fact about the construction of this magnificent building is that the roof of the building was not originally constructed at the top. The construction of the roof was completed separately and then they placed it on the arena building. The arena building has a capacity of 20,000 people and is composed of three different types of seating. The seating in the arena is believed to provide a clear view of the stage. The sound quality of the arena is also believed to be extra ordinary. People who attend concerts in this arena describe it as a once in a lifetime experience.
