It’ll never be just “The O2″ to me. Unless they give me free tickets of course! Plus people are bound to call it “The Point” still. We used to have a shop at home and even though there had been three or four different owners since “Jack”, we still always called it “Jack’s”. Didn’t matter that a guy called Paul (not me either) owned it, we all still kept our name – the name we knew.
Anyhow, this December, Leonard Cohen returns to Ireland (his Royal Kilmainham shows went down a treat) to play the Point, sorry the O2. He’ll play there December 1st. No details of tickets or prices yet, but I’ll let you know as soon as I hear.
