The show of course was great. Kylie had numerous costume and set changes, did all her hits from her new album and old favourites, finishing with 'Lucky' – which the audience went absolutely mad for. I was wowed by the great view of the stage, giant screens and fantastic acoustics.
The entire experience was brilliant from start to finish. Trains were frequent and weren’t overcrowded, and I made it back home to north London in well under an hour from leaving my seat.
Kylie and her dance troupe on stage:
During the Games, North Greenwich Arena 1 will host Gymnastics and the finals of the Basketball competition, allowing for 20,000 spectators for the Basketball final and 16,500 for the Gymnastics.
A second, temporary arena - North Greenwich Arena 2 - will be built next to the existing one. It will have 6,000 seats for spectators of Badminton and Rhythmic Gymnastics during the Olympic Games and 6,000 seats for spectators of Sitting Volleyball during the Paralympic Games.
Having experienced the arena at its fullest capacity, there is no doubt in my mind that North Greenwich Arena 1 will be the perfect venue to host these great sporting events in 2012. And although it is four years away, I can’t wait!
