As London hunkers down and waits for Storm Eunice to pass, it’s clear that the capital is not going to escape today’s storm unscathed. We’re already starting to see the damage done in real time; footage and pictures are emerging on Twitter of pretty bad damage to the O2 Arena, where the iconic white dome has been ripped by the strong winds currently battering the capital.

Tonight’s concert – Fugees’ 25th anniversary tour for their album The Score – has already been cancelled, and it’s currently unclear what the damage could mean for upcoming concerts featuring Dave (Feb 21/22), UB40 (Feb 25), and Simply Red (March 2/3). We’ll keep you posted with the latest updates as we get them.
