Smaller concerts in Paris are spread out on a whole lot of smaller and larger venues, like for example Bercy. But, the real big hot shots, they come to Stade de France. This stadium is the national stadium of France, located in the Saint-Denis area. It is in fact the eight largest stadium in all of Europe, with a capacity on more than 80,000 people, all with a seat to sit on.
The construction of Stade de France started in 1995 and the official opening of this magnificent stadium was on January 28th in 1998. Later that year France won 3-0 against Brazil in the World Cup Final at the same stadium!
Throughout the year the stadium has hosted a lot of important sport events, but it has also served as the venue for some of the greatest concerts in the history of France.
