What: Four music gigs are to be played.
Where: The O2 in Greenwich, east London.
When: 21st to 22nd December.
Thousands of music fans will head to the O2 in east London this weekend as four spectacular shows are due to be held at the venue over the coming days. The O2 is renowned as one of the capital's top settings for live performances and its reputation is sure to be enhanced yet again after this weekend's acts have taken to the stage.
First up is a very special show entitled Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker, which features a host of stars. The performance is designed to celebrate the talents of the legendary Stock Aitken Waterman songwriting and production team and the plethora of hits the trio were behind.
More than 500 million records have been sold around the world by artists that fall under the team's control and they are headlined by Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan - both of whom will be belting out classic hits at the O2 tonight (21st December).
But they are far from the only famous faces dues on stage, as the likes of Bananarama, Rick Astley, Dead or Alive, Sinitta, Pepsi & Shirley and 2 Unlimited are on the bill.
Also on at the O2 this evening are Shalamar, with the disco legends set to perform their own show at the venue. They will run through all their classic hits - such as There It Is, I Can Make You Feel Good and Take That To The Bank - and many more, before an after show party kicks off under the guidance of the house DJ.
Looking ahead another 24 hours, tomorrow night sees the return of Madness to the venue. The iconic group stole the show with a gig at the O2 last Friday and are back on the bill this weekend, where they are expected to perform hits including Our House and Baggy Trousers.
It is the latest leg of the group's largest arena tour to date and thousands of fans are set to descend on the O2 to catch them live in what is sure to be a special performance.
The final event of the weekend at the O2 comes in the shape of Low Down Deep & Shadow Demon, who are set to perform together for the first time tomorrow. This is described as a festive shindig so anybody looking for some festive fun in the capital can head along to the arena for the special drum 'n' bass club night.
With big crowds expected at the O2, the best way to reach the venue is by train. People from around England can arrive in the city at London Marylebone station, from where it is easy to reach Greenwich.
Gig goers should take the Tube from London Marylebone by boarding a southbound train and alighting at Waterloo, where they can change to the Jubilee line. This eastbound train will take them direct to North Greenwich station, just yards from the O2.
