"Your invitiation to the O2 arena"

Over the weekend I had a leaflet popped through my door, my "invitation to the O2 arena."

A free event has been organised for local people, a sneak preview and a chance for the O2 organisers a chance to check that everything's working OK. It's on Wednesday the 20th of June and the doors open at 6pm.

The evening's being hosted by a "London Radio DJ", there'll be some unsigned bands playing and the first performers will be a mass choir from local primary schools.

While the entertainment doesn't sound cracking (the school choir is a fantastic idea though, imagine those kids knowing they'll be the first performers on the stage that's hosting people like the Rolling Stones!) the O2 is the biggest thing to happen around here in a while so I was really interested in going.

The leaflet said that tickets would be available online from "Monday 11th June at 10am" from

So 10am comes around, I log on, then I read the web site saying that tickets were available from "Friday 8 June at 10am."

So all that's left is some seats on the upper level.

Thanks Greenwich Council. A great idea (probably the O2's owners?) that you've still managed to mess up.
