Pop sensation JoJo Siwa recently took a nostalgic trip down memory lane, reminiscing about the monumental night in 2019 when she made history as the youngest solo artist to headline and sell out London’s iconic O2 Arena.


JoJo Siwa Made History at Just 16 Years Old

The milestone event, part of Siwa’s D.R.E.A.M. The Tour, marked a career-defining moment for the then 16-year-old. Looking back on that electrifying performance, Siwa called it “definitely the highlight of my career.”

Siwa’s journey to selling out the O2 was years in the making. She started as a young dance prodigy, training intensely and competing on reality shows like Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. However, it was her infectious brand of positivity, signature colorful bows, and catchy pop tunes that catapulted her to mainstream fame.

By 2019, Siwa had become a full-blown phenomenon, racking up millions of YouTube views, topping charts with her singles, and embarking on a massive US tour. The announcement that the D.R.E.A.M. Tour would make a stop at London’s iconic O2 Arena marked a new milestone.


When tickets went on sale, they sold out almost instantly. The anticipation was palpable leading up to the big night on November 3, 2019. While the weight of making history settled on her young shoulders, Siwa was fueled by a desire to deliver an unforgettable show.

The lights dimmed, and Siwa erupted onto the stage in a blaze of neon and energy. Belting out her hits like “Bop!” and “Hold the Drama,” she commanded the stage with astounding confidence and charisma. The audience echoed back each song, waving their bows in solidarity with their idol.

A Night That Will Forever Remain Special

Siwa’s interaction with the crowd stole the show. Her genuine connection and inspiration shone through everything she did. For every person in that arena, it was a night they’d never forget.


As the show closed with “Boomerang,” the exhilaration was clear on Siwa’s face. She had manifested a dream that night. Breaking the record was just a small part of the magic. Looking back now, JoJo is filled with nostalgia for that formative era.

“Nothing quite like D.R.E.A.M. The Tour,” she wrote. “Can’t wait for the next time I get to travel the world doing what I love most.”

While Siwa has grown up since that fated night in 2019, it remains a touchstone representing her core message of embracing individuality and never giving up on your dreams. Even today, Siwa stands as an inspiration for countless fans to stay true to themselves.

You appear to be able to read my thoughts. It’s as though you authored the book on this subject or something. You seem to know so much about it. I think a few graphics could help to emphasise the point a little bit more, but other than that, this is a terrific blog, and I will surely be back.

I loved even more than you will get done right here. The picture is nice, and your writing is stylish, but you seem to be rushing through it, and I think you should give it again soon. I’ll probably do that again and again if you protect this hike.

It was great seeing how much work you put into it. The picture is nice, and your writing style is stylish, but you seem to be worrying that you should be presenting the next article. I’ll almost certainly be back to read more of your work if you take care of this hike.

I loved even more than you will get done right here. The overall look is nice, and the writing is stylish, but there’s something off about the way you write that makes me think that you should be careful what you say next. I will definitely be back again and again if you protect this hike.
