This is when dozens of music fans dramatically stormed London’s O2 Arena, smashing security scanners and pushing guards past.

A crowd of revelers made their way through the security gates last night to watch Nigerian singer Wizkid at one of three sold-out concerts.

The O2 said they are reviewing their security procedures and advised fans coming to shows this week to arrive early for security checks.

People going to watch performances at the former Millennium Dome in North Greenwich must show a Covid pass to enter.

The chaotic scenes come three weeks after the deadly crush on rapper Travis Scott’s two-day Astroworld festival in Texas.

Venue officials said “a number of fans” entered the venue whether or not they had a ticket to Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” tour.

Footage posted to social media shows dozens of young people pushing through the lines and storming into the O2 as guards tried to push back.

The crowd then knocked over the airport’s security scanners as they stormed into the venue. In another video, a woman appears to push a security guard off a location after grabbing another member of the audience.

An O2 Arena spokesperson said: ‘Tonight there was a breach of the security cordon at the entrance to the arena and as a result a number of fans in line were able to enter the venue.

“The situation was quickly brought under control by the staff and the incident was resolved.

“The venue is reviewing security procedures for the remaining shows this week and advises fans to arrive early tomorrow night for security checks and again on Wednesday.”

Social media users called the scenes “sick” and “disgraceful”, while another said: “After Astroworld? People are not ashamed and do not value their safety.’

It comes three weeks after ten people were killed and dozens injured, on the first night of Scott’s two-day Astroworld festival in Houston.
