Remember 2000? The largest anticlimax ever? New Year’s Eve was actually rubbish – hardly the greatest party the world has ever seen. Anyway, we seemed to symbolize the Dome as a huge white physical manifestation of our disappointment. Fact is the Dome its self is a stunning piece of architecture – it was the content that was a bit shite. Now though the Dome has a chance to prove its self as the destination it always wanted to be. Gone are the exhibitions designed to make us reflect on ourself and the world around us replaced with the capitals largest entertainment complex. A huge arena, cinema, and restaurants. It also means I can finally satisfy my seven year long desire to see the Dome with my own eyes – without having to put up with crap government funded exhibitions.
So I’m off to the invite-only grand opening. Basment Jaxx, Tom Jones, Kaiser Chiefs, Dermot O’Leary and a secret comedian. All under the glass fibre fabric roof of London’s most controversial landmark. I’ll let you know more soon.
