Santana @ the O2

Last night had a ride up on the bike to see Santana at the O2. Never having been before and having read the scare stories about the overpriced parking and jams in and out we decided to go by bike!

I had already seen where to park when we have been there in the car when going to football. Rather than drive to Highbury and try to park, we park at North Greenwich and get the tube to Arsenal.

It was Claire's first trip on the bike since her foot problem and she managed to squeeze her foot in her boots!

Parking was easy and we then walked across through the station and into the O2. I've seen the Dome for years but was amazed at the building inside the "tent"! The main O2 is easily as big as Wembley Arena!

The concert was excellent; playing mostly Supernatural plus a load of other stuff I have never heard before. A couple of guests including Beverley Knight and her backing singers.

This was the third time I have seen Santana. Once at the Hammersmith Odeon with Buddy Miles and once at the roman amphitheatre in Frejus in France.

The ride home was pretty uneventful.
