Please note this event is ticketless entry. You will need to bring the payment card used to purchase tickets as well as photo ID in order to gain entry to the event.  

If you have an expired card that's still in your possession – please proceed to the entrance.

If you have a new card, but the number is different – please proceed to the box office, with your order confirmation, photo ID and the new card. Tickets will not be issued to customers not presenting Photo ID.

Can I bring a camera?

Yes. Small personal cameras are fine for each show at The O2. We ask that you turn off the flash so as not to distract the performers or other guests. Larger SLR type cameras are not permitted into the venue unfortunately. This is at the request of the event promoter. For cameras that look similar to SLR cameras, the staff on the entrances must use their discretion, and your camera may be held at the entrance until the end of the show if it is not allowed to come in. It will be looked after safely for you and you will be given a ticket so you can collect it.

Can I take any food or drink into the arena?

Food and drink bought outside The O2 arena can’t be taken into the arena. Please call 020 8463 2000 or email us at if you need to bring food or drink with you for medical or religious reasons. Don't worry, we don't waste anything. We donate what you can't take with you to local charities.

You can ask at any bar, for tap water and this is complimentary.

Is there a standing cloakroom at The O2?

The cloakroom can be found once you've entered the arena at entrance E.

Items can be left for a charge of £2.00 per item. You will need to pay by credit or debit card only. The cloakroom will close 30 minutes after the end of the show.

Any items not collected after the show will be kept for a maximum of 7 days.

Please note: There is limited capacity and once we have reached capacity the cloakroom will close. The cloakroom can only be used by fans with a general admission standing ticket.
