The O2 arena, typeset as The O2 arena for branding, is a multi-purpose indoor arena located at the centre of The O2, a large entertainment complex on the Greenwich peninsula in South East London, United Kingdom. It is the first American style arena in London. With a capacity of up to 20,000 depending on the event, it is one of the largest indoor arenas in Europe.
Despite The O2 arena being open for only 7 months of the year, the venue sold over 1.2 million tickets in 2007, making it the third most popular venue in the world for concerts and family shows narrowly behind the Manchester Evening News Arena (1.25 million) and Madison Square Garden in New York (1.23 million). In 2008 The O2 arena is expected to become the world's busiest venue taking the crown from Manchester's MEN Arena with sales of more than two million.
