In indigo at The O2, Ed Sheeran performed as part of War Child BRITs Week and Charlie Brooker’s Inside Black Mirror was a much-coveted ticket.
Michael McIntyre was awarded for his record breaking shows, the comedian first performed in 2009 and nine years later, marked his 28th headline performance, having sold over 409,238 tickets. The record was previously held by Take That.
When global pop sensations BTS revealed their only UK dates of 2018, it was the most popular announcement the venue has ever had. Their phenomenal impact led to two sold-out performances.
