Is Michael Jackson converting customers to o2 this morning?

Finally, the benefits of being an o2 customer are becoming clear!

If you’d like to go to one of Michael Jackson’s strictly limited (until next time) concerts at the o2 Dome, then this morning was D-Day for you.

Priority tickets were available from 7am this morning to o2 customers.

I still don’t really see the connection between being an o2 customer and getting these sorts of offers. It’s certainly cool. But is it going to make me switch operator?

Maybe. I wonder.

At 721, Mr Data Centre himself, Steve O’Donnell of The Hot Aisle, logged on to the o2 Blueroom site and found it unavailable. Finding business critical servers offline or overloaded is like a red rag to a bull for Steve. He was not impressed.

I haven’t managed to find out if he’s secured any tickets yet though.

As for me, well I always enjoyed the spectacle of a Michael Jackson concert.

If o2 keeps on bringing superstar acts to the Dome and continues to create priority offerings, I can see some Vodafone, T-Mobile and Orange customers beginning to weaken…

If you’d like to snag some tickets — make sure you’re on o2 — or go and get an o2 sim this morning — you can do so at http://www.o2blueroom.co.uk/

I do like the sound of an ‘o2 Angel’, by the way:

O2 angels

Look out for our angels. They’ll give you instant upgrades and tell you about the perks you can get if you’re on O2. They’ll even take your picture for our blueroom gallery.

O2 lady on the phone this morning, told me that O2 London office was pretty much down. No Internet. No texts. No email. Just what you want from your network operator……

….Oh yeh, as for Jackson tickets, the priority password they sent me through is apparently “not recorded in their system”. Nice one O2. Thought you might have learnt something from the iPhone fiasco of 2008. Now here we are in MJ Meltdown 09

You don't strictly have to be an O2 mobile customer, you get priority if you've been to the O2 arena for any concerts recently. Although I'm on O2 broadband now as Tiscali couldn't cope with a telephone number change 🙁

Hi Neil
Sorry to hear you had problems with the tickets. The codes needed to be used by going to the Blueroom first and following the links from there, not going to Ticketmaster direct.

Hi JP
Yep, i went through link from the O2 Blueroom, which took me through to an O2 Ticketmaster site. Tried to use my code throughout the day yesterday but all to no avail. Which as you can imagine was kind of frustrating, especially as new dates were being added thru the day.
