Win Trip With Tickets to See Rod Stewart at London’s O2 Arena – A Brief History


If you win Lite Rock’s Workday Getaway of the Lifetime trip to London, you might visit attractions like Buckingham Palace, London Bridge and Big Ben, but you will certainly visit the O2 Arena.

We know this because we’re including a pair of tickets to see Rod Stewart live at the O2 arena as part of your prize!  Sweet!!

Here’s a little of the back story on this one-of-a-kind structure in south east London that including an indoor arena, a music club, a cinema, an exhibition space, piazzas, bars and restaurants and a 20,000 seat arena.

It was built largely within the former Millennium Dome, a large dome-shaped building built to house an exhibition celebrating the turn of the third millennium.

Later, renamed the O2 Arena, after the telecommunications company title sponsor, it reopened in 2007 with Bon Jovi providing the opening night entertainment.

The venue served as the location for several of the events in London’s 2012 Summer Olympic Games, including  basketball.

Led Zeppelin performed at the O2  when they came out of a self-imposed exile; they played their first show in twenty-five years! After ten years, the Spice Girls came together to perform once again as a group. The arena is known for its outstanding acoustics

The O2 can also be seen in an action sequence in the 2006 “Da Vinci Code,” it is the O2 Arena that helps Bond reach a hot air balloon in the move “The World Is Not Enough.”

The latest attraction allows you to walk across that goofy -looking roof on a guided tour.  You have to let us know how that goes if you win the trip! (Click the link to enter)
