Re: Kings of Leon Concert at O2

I'm just curious why the loss of 2 tour buses (which were present at the venue therefore presumably safely delivered the people inside the tour buses) with no injuries to people means a concert that some people will have been travelling to for many hours gets cancelled at the last minute.
Man, if I'd battled my way from say York to London only to find the concert cancelled pretty much as I arrived at the arena I'd be spitting teeth.

Re: Kings of Leon Concert at O2

Much as you know I hate a conspiracy theory, both tour buses caught fire at the same time!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I'd guess the arena was evacuated and that no setting up could be done.

Re: Kings of Leon Concert at O2

Indeed, that is what the O2 have pretty much said.  Still doesn't make sense to me as to why it was cancelled so late in the day, the fire happened in the morning, it was early evening before they cancelled.  Heck the cancellation was so late I would expect many Londoners even to have set off.
