A re-opening date has been set for London’s O2 arena after part of the venue’s roof was damaged on Friday as the capital battled Storm Eunice.
An official statement was released by The O2 today, announcing that the venue will re-open its doors on February 25th.
“The O2 prides itself on being a venue full of entertainment but following Friday’s storm, we’re not quite looking our best,” the statement reads.
“We want to continue to provide a safe and secure best-in-class experience for our visitors, so we have made the decision to remain closed until Friday February 25 to give us time to carry out some necessary works on our roof.”
On Friday (February 18), footage emerged online of the O2’s white roof covering flapping as parts were ripped apart during Storm Eunice.
Dave was due to perform at the O2 Arena this Monday and Tuesday but both shows have been postponed.
The O2 have said they “can’t wait to welcome artists and guests back as soon as possible.”
