Yesterday I went to see Michael McIntyre at the O2 in London. I booked the tickets a year and a half ago so the day was a long time coming! However just as I thought, it was well worth the wait. I've got a lot of stress and worries at the moment so it was just nice to have a carefree evening, having a laugh. The show was fantastic, non-stop laughs throughout. I actually laughed so much that this morning my jaw was aching and throat was sore! I couldn't take any pictures or videos of the show, but the DVD is released on the 12th of November and i'll be sure to buy that.
Just before 6pm we left the restaurant and made our way back to the Sky section which is near entrance B. It's called Sky Backstage and if you are a Sky customer and have arena tickets for that day then you can book tickets to have a VIP experience for free. I booked mine quite a few months before the event and this was quick and easy to do. If you search for Sky Rewards in a search engine then you'll find the website to get the tickets. You can get tickets for yourself and up to 3 guests. We took our pass to the entrance and were welcomed by two bubbly and friendly girls, they radioed some man and within a couple of minutes he had put on our wristbands and was escorting us upstairs.
I was amazed when we walked in as I thought it would have just been a crammed little bar full with people, however this was not the case. We were first shown to the 'paparazzi' section where a photographer was standing ready to take a photo of us, we was given a card with a code on so we could download the picture off the sky rewards website.
So a few drinks later and after a chilled out couple of hours we left Sky Backstage and went on to have a giggle at Michael Mcintyre. We had a brilliant night, definitely the best experience i've ever had at the O2. If i'm ever going back there for an event in the future then I hope I can get tickets for the Sky Backstage, it was a great pre-show experience with the VIP treatment just for being a Sky customer! So I must say a big thank you to Sky and everyone who works within the Sky Backstage area at the O2.
