The O2 Arena is the largest venue within The O2 and regularly plays host to music and entertainment acts, stage shows and movie premieres as well as recently hosting events at the 2012 Olympic Games. It is one of the largest arenas in Europe and widely considered to be the busiest and most successful music venue in the world. Boasting perfect sight-lines from every angle and crystal clear acoustics, it certainly is a state of the art venue.
During Boundless 2015, up to 15,000 Salvationists will gather in The O2 arena in seven main sessions filled with music, drama, dance, and the Word.
