A spokesperson for the O2 arena said: “Unfortunately, due to this morning’s fire on board one of the tour buses at The O2, tonight’s Kings of Leon concert will now be postponed.

It is unknown what started the fire, which broke out at 8am this morning, but apparently no harm ahs been done to the dome.

A spokesperon for the London Fire Brigade said: “The dome is fine, the structure is fine. There is no damage to the structure of the dome.

“The O2’s sprinkler system successfully activated and this had helped firefighters bring the blaze swiftly under control.”

However venue bosses still felt it necessary to cancel the Kings of Leon tonight.

“Whilst there is no damage to The O2 there is now insufficient time to rig the arena for tonight’s performance.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience and we will announce a new date shortly,” said an 02 spokesperson.
