The O2 Arena will now host their first socially distanced show with Squeeze on 22nd May 2021.
The show was originally scheduled for last December but it had to be rescheduled due to government guidelines, which has left The O2 temporarily closed.
The gig, which will see the venue’s capacity reduced from 20,000 to 4700, will be the first live music event with fans since the venue closed in March 2020 due to the pandemic. A number of safety measures and extensive planning will be in place to welcome fans back to the arena safely.
Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze said “I am so thrilled to be playing The O2 with Squeeze and to be able to chalk up another first for us on this hallowed ground, previously the site of a gasworks, whose social club featured a double bill of Chris Difford and myself with Bucks Fizz’s Cheryl Baker. That was a long time ago. We are putting a lot of time and energy into this show to make it one not to forget. See you there! Love, Glenn.”
