The O2 celebrates another record year

The O2 has racked up another record year, reporting over two million tickets sold to shows at the venue. 

The London complex hosted 209 performances of music, comedy, sport and entertainment, with sell-out spectaculars from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Pearl Jam and Country To Country’s sixth year, while Ed Sheeran performed at Indigo At The O2 as part of War Child BRITs Week.

The O2 also hosted K-pop phenomenon BTS' only UK dates of 2018, which achieved record merchandise sales at the venue, overtaking The Rolling Stones.

The venue's former VP & general manager John Langford, who was recently promoted to AEG Europe COO, said: “We’ve seen a huge amount of activity at The O2 this year, with the opening of Icon Outlet, Oxygen Freejumping and not to mention the record breaking content that’s kept over two million entertained. I’d like to thank each and every person at The O2 and I’m confident that Steve Sayer will oversee another incredible year, when he takes over as VP & general manager in 2019.”

Upcoming gigs at the venue include Ariana Grande, George Ezra, The 1975, Ozzy Osbourne, Westlife, Shawn Mendes and Take That.
