Elton John and his well travelled piano will be bringing in the New Year at the O2. And that’s not all – we’re giving O2 customers a whole week to get their tickets before anyone else.

Countdown to Midnight is returning for the second year to The O2 with Elton John’s Red Piano extravaganza. After the success of last year’s New Years Eve party with Take That, this year’s Countdown to Midnight promises to big bigger and better. 

Elton John has been wowing audiences with his Red Piano tour since 2004 and Countdown to Midnight at The O2 will showcase the very best of Elton John. Elton said “I can’t wait to get to spend New Year’s Eve with 17,000 of my biggest fans. I can’t think of a better way to see in 2009.” If that was not enough, there will also be special guest appearances that are soon to be announced.

O2 customers can register for the presale today by texting Party to 2402. General sale tickets are available from www.theo2.co.uk or by calling 0844 856 0202 on Monday 24th November.
