Among Berlin’s residents, celebrities, and dignitaries, ICON Venue Group celebrated the Grand Opening of O2 World on September 10, 2008. Inside the arena, the guests enjoyed a cirque-like performance from Enno-Ilke Uhde, while outdoor onlookers enjoyed a bright fireworks spectacle coupled with graphics on the building’s exterior LED façade. The arena hosted a concert from local favorite Herbert Gronemeyer on September 11 and Metallica kicked off its “Death Magnetic” tour on September 12. ICON is so proud of its work representing Anschutz Entertainment Group and being a part of such a wonderful project.

ICON specially recognizes all of its personnel who have helped the arena construction reach this important milestone: Tim Romani, Art Aaron, Tom Noonan, Bill Mannarelli, Susann-Isabell Pfaff, Barbara Sieg, and Melanie Richtsteig.
