Nigerian singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, best known as Davido’s concert at London O2 Arena on Saturday March 5 is in doubt after Storm Eunicehit the UK.
The storm has necessitated that the O2 ‘could be closed for months’ as gigs are postponed after 122mph Storm Eunice ripped its domed roof to shreds.
The tempest has wrought devastation around theUK yesterday with record 122mph winds.
Around 1,000 people were evacuated from the arena in London as firefighters rushed to reports the roof had partially collapsed.
Employees now say the venue, which houses dozens of bars and restaurants, a shopping centre and a massive live music venue, could be closed for months while repairs are made.
One employee told the media that the roof over the shops “was whipped off” with a “huge whooshing sound”.
Another said they understood at least part of the building will be shut for weeks to come. The venue’s website is still offering tickets for performances.
Davido who released his critically acclaimed debut studio album Omo Baba Olowo in 2012 is not the only singer that the venue ‘closure’ might affect as British star Dave who is due to host two performances on Monday and Tuesday might be affected. The Fugees: The Score 25th Anniversary Tour which was due to take place at the O2 last night was cancelled altogether because of the storm.
No word is available yet on what fans who have bought tickets should do.
