London's Millennium Dome to become a concert arena
May 25, 2005
Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) and mobile phone company O2 have said they intend to open London's Millennium Dome as a concert arena in April 2007.
The 365 m diameter dome was built in the 1990s for the year 2000 celebrations and is the largest single-roof structure in the world. After hosting an exhibition for 2000, the dome has mostly laid empty.
The building, to be renamed the O2, will contain a 23,000 seat arena, an 1,800 seat theatre and a 2,200 capacity night club.
