Help me! tonight in the O2 I needed reassurance from security - 2 guys spoiling for trouble had been given a wide berth by everyone around them so I wondered over to security to suggest something might kick off! Bless them they came over and I was thrilled that everyone's enjoyment wouldn't be ruined by 2 idiots, however when the bouncer from IRIDIUM tried to talk to him, the instigator held his own and when asked to talk outside never complied - his excuse - they were friends - security backed down and then the security guard in full view of this man came over to me -the informant- so to speak to ask me what I was talking about!
i was physically shaken that he was not only scared in his dealings with this man but blatent in exposing me! I think I have learnt a sacred lesson. let the shi* hit the fan and don't get involved......
Went here for the first time last week to see Adam Ant in concert (am I showing my age? Yikes!).
It was fun (Mr Ant fell off the stage ... twice. Very rock 'n' roll). The sound and lighting were fantastic in my opinion (but it should be noted I rarely go out to see live shows these days). Bar staff seemed efficient enough for a packed house, and the overall vibe of Indigo was cool as well. Essentially, if there's an act playing here, it's as good as any venue to catch them perform.
I'm of two minds about the O2 complex in general. I mean, it kinda just comes across like a big mall which just happens to put on shows. That said, if there are shows being put on here that I'd like to see I wouldn't think twice about heading back. I will say they've got the queue management down and even though it's a bit out of the way for me it's pretty easy getting to and from the venue.
For anyone who was young in the late 80's will know the sound of London's very own group, Soul 2 Soul.
After hearing they were performing at IndigO2 at the O2, I jumped at the chance to go see Jazzie B spin a few discs.
It was a great evening, with lots of tunes (including Back to Life) that made me feel like a teenager all over again.
IndigO2 is one of the lesser known music venues inside the arena and is a little hidden gem.
It has an impressive sound set up and the space is very inviting as is the dance floor.
This was my first experience of the O2 and I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised.
The IndigO2 is a great venue to see live music and somehow seems more intimate than its big brother, the O2 Arena.
I saw Nas with the Rock the Bells at Indigo2 last week and really wasn’t overly impressed with the venue. We sat in the upper levels, where we had a fairly limited view of the stage. Though we could see what was going on, the angle of view was very extreme and rather marred what would otherwise have been one of the best performances I’ve seen in a long time.
The poor design of the venue was made even clearer as we exited. Despite the event not having been full, the lobby and doors were backed up for a long time before we were able to exit into the main O2 building.
Apart from the layout of the venue, the whole thing was really badly organised, with three different queues in operation. We arrived half an hour before the first act started but had to queue for nearly an hour and so missed their performance.
As I said, this would have been one of the best shows I’d seen, but the experience was seriously marred by the venue.
Me and my partner went to see Michael Mcintyre last night. First time we have been.
For a comedian performing, the seating was very cramped. Was a little disapointed that the seating was not raised etc… Had 2 big guys in front of me and couldnt really see what was going on.
I paid £4 for a pint of Becks… £4. Expensive or what?
The venue is a nice little venue though. The lighting was very easy on the eye, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of staff!
Half way through the performance there was a problem with the sound, it kept hissing. Michael Mcintyre got annoyed when there was no one to sort it out. He spent 5 minutes blending it into his act. No one sorted it :-(
This music venue is simply incredible. Every thing about it has been designed for being the perfect live music venue. The never ending bar lines the wall furthest from the stage. A spattering of seating sits between the bar and the sounddesk. A barrier separates the main floor from the back of the venue. The sound is breathtaking, which is something so rare these days with live music. The upstairs area is also great too, with very comfortable seats and a great view of the stage.
Sure some people have complained about the sterility of this venue, but why try and make a new venue look dingy? Surely you want it to be as spectacular as possible and allow time to settle its appearance?
I think the O2’s greatest success is the extensive list of additional entertainments and venues collected under its dome. It’s a lot more than just a 20,000-person stadium: it’s a cinema and restaurants and bars, and also this 1700-ish capacity concert venue.
indigO2 has two levels: a flat floor with well-spaced rows of seats, and a large, steep balcony that has comfy arm-rested cup-enabled seats like a movie theatre. The result is a modern, good-sounding, “club+” music venue. There are bars at the back of both levels, and large, clean toilets. There’s also a mid-level bar with discreet entrances that overlooks the O2 promenade, used for private afterparties and such.
I found some of the upstairs seating so steep that low-hanging light rigs can sometimes block a bit of the view, but all in all a very civilised place to see medium-sized sit-down artists.
I concur with the above! This is a really well done, intimate music venue. I really didn’t know what to expect when getting the Thames Clipper boat down to the Millennium Tent to see my favourite ever artist, Andrew Bird. This was a one-off show as he’s in the middle of recording his new album right now. The gig was, well, probably the best I’ve ever been too. But this review is of the venue… and, that was pretty damn good too. No sticky floors in sight here, just miles of bars making it really easy to get served, and a low stage with sunken floor, all standing, and brilliant acoustics. This is as close as you could come to a ‘your front room’ feeling in a 1000 capacity venue - well worth braving the 40 minute boat trip!
This is a brilliant live music venue inside the dome. I went to see Maceo Parker here and was totally impressed at the sound quality the size of the bar, the trendy loos, everything!! Not sure how it would be idf it was really packed as there are some places in the room where you may get stuck behind a pillar or have a side view. However for this gig there was good viewing, plenty of space to shake a leg and the bar staff didnt keep you waiting too long for a drink.
The only problem is getting home from here is a mission and takes ages.
