What event did you go to see and why?
I went to see Enrique Iglesias with 3 of my friends, simply because I’ve loved him for years and the chance came up to go with my friends and have a girly weekend.
What did you think of the performance? Did it live up to expectations?
It was an amazing concert, we all loved it. Demi Lovato was his supporting act and she was great too. Enrique was brilliant and sang all our favourite songs, ‘Hero’ being my personal favourite! It even included a marriage proposal between a couple who were there, but once on stage the girl seemed more in love with Enrique than her new fiancé.
Was this your first visit to The O2? What did you make of the facilities?
This was my second visit to The O2 in London, but this visit was definitely my favourite! The facilities were great, everything we needed was there.
Did you enjoy a meal or drinks out before the event? If so would you recommend the places?
We went to Nandos at The O2 before we went to our seats (which were fab), it was yummy and super fast efficient service as always. We also enjoyed drinks at one of the bars beforehand
Which hotel did you stay in and what did you think of it? How far was the distance to The O2?
We stayed at the Imperial Hotel in Russell Square, it’s in a fab location and we liked the fact that it has a late bar for food and drinks that we went to after The O2. We stayed in central London as we thought it would be more handy for the next day as we were planning a day in London before our train home at tea time.
How did you get to The O2? How did you find travelling around London?
We got to The O2 by using the tubes, we’d bought Oyster cards and we thought these were great, we didn’t have to queue to buy underground tickets. The tube was so busy on the way back from The O2, we were squashed, so if we go again we may try the river transfer instead, especially if its summer time, or if we were going to use the tubes we may stay at The O2 for a drink and avoid the rush.
How does The O2 compare to other venues?
The O2 is a great venue, especially with all the food and drink outlets there.
Have any other events caught your eye this year?
I would love to see Lionel Richie again!
