Things will get underway on Friday 28 October with a special night for Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman. Indigo at The O2 will be transformed into a special birthday celebration for the star. Billed as Bill Wyman’s 80th Birthday Gala, the event will see the likes of Mark Knopfler, Bob Geldof, Imelda May and Mick Hucknall perform.
The following evening rock supergroup Bad Company are set to take over the stage with guitarist extraordinaire Richie Sambora. Meanwhile, Jo Harman and Lauren Housley will entertain crowds at Brooklyn Bowl.
