We saw Nile Rodgers and Chic perform on 11/11/15. We are frequent visitors to the O2 in London so really enjoyed this smaller venue. Although we were in the R Section upstairs which was near the back, we had a great view of the stage....More

We went to see Jimeoin perform last night and were really looking forward to a good night. Such a disappointment. The sound was rubbish and we could barely see the performer. One would think with all the recent investment in the Waterfront that a large...More
