Because of delayed upgrading work being done on the London Underground, the Jubilee line will be closed down every weekend during the summer. The only Tube access to the 02 is through the North Greenwich station, which is on the Jubilee Line.
Sources at O2, who learned of the closures in talks held between Mr Hendy of TFL and the venue’s chief executive David Campbell, said they were “upset” at the difficulty Michael Jackson fans would face.
A spokeswoman for AEG, owners and operators of The O2 arena said; “The additional Jubilee line closures are not ideal but we are working with TfL, as we always have done, to minimise the disruption to our visitors. Together we have put in place a robust alternative transport plan which has already proven to work.”
It is thought that buses will be provided to ferry the fans that are affected by the Tube closures
