Fans of American rock band Nickelback had been anxiously waiting to find out if tonight's concert at the O2 would go ahead, after a controlled explosion was carried out at the nearby North Greenwich Tube station.
A suspicious package was found on board an eastbound Jubilee train this morning, but following discussions with the police, the O2 said the venue would remain open and the performance would go ahead as planned.
London -the show will go on. We will be posting information shortly on the approved methods of transportation to get to @The02venues tonite.— Nickelback (@Nickelback) October 20, 2016
Only problem was, the Tube station remained shut.
There were many versions made of the same joke...
North Greenwich tube still closed, suspicious package detonated. Is this all a plot to save us from Nickelback playing at the O2 tonight?— evanraskob (@evanraskob) October 20, 2016
The lengths people will go to to stop the evil that is Nickelback. https://t.co/Ck0CKhbsL9— Steve Heffernan (@SteveHef) October 20, 2016
But Nickelback fans were forced to travel by more unusual means to get to the concert.
Some took the travel delays and disruptions in their stride...
And others had better luck than others.
While some braced the capital's traffic instead.
Perhaps most importantly, the Emirates Air Line may be on course for its busiest night in history…
3 trains, severe delays, one cable car and a controlled explosion later, BRING ON NICKELBACK!!! pic.twitter.com/t7nomPqlPf— Into Horizon (@IntoHorizonBand) October 20, 2016
