The 02 Arena in Greenwich, south London, which flopped as the Millennium Dome, is now the world’s top entertainment venue. Latest audience figures show it way ahead of its nearest rival, the Manchester Evening News Arena, selling a total of 853,067 tickets last year. Many customers arrive well before a concert to have a meal or a drink in one of the many restaurants. It is also much easier to reach and get away from than many other London venues.
