Hampton Court Palace

The venue offers guests a truly unique experience as the orange brick courtyard makes for an ethereal and unique backdrop for live music, bringing you closer to the artist and creating a truly intimate atmosphere.

While also enjoying an intimate concert experience at Hampton Court Palace, you can take a step back in time through the palace doors with the option to enjoy dining and drinks experiences fit for a king.

Wembley Stadium

Wembley Stadium is the UK’s largest stadium, and marks the pinnacle of success for many touring artists.

Securing a spot at the iconic venue often acts as a poignant moment for stars as they perform in front of the giant 80,000 person crowd. Many artists take a moment during their performance at Wembley to reflect on their musical journey and pay thanks to their success.

In recent years, the stadium has welcomed global superstars ranging from Blur and Foo Fighters to Harry Styles and Coldplay. While Wembley Stadium is famous for playing host to some of the globe’s most successful superstars, the venue itself also makes for a unique concert experience.

The sheer size of Wembley Stadium creates an atmosphere like no other in the UK. With masses of fans gathering under one roof to sing along with their favourite artist and enjoy an incredible live music experience, the stadium creates a feeling of elation and closeness despite its size.

Principality Stadium

While Cardiff’s Principality Stadium is known for being the home of Wales Rugby, it is also famed for its incredible music events.

The 74,500 capacity stadium and its rich history, reaped in the message of life and strength for a new millennia, solidifies its position as one of the most iconic venues in the UK.

Over the years, the stadium has welcomed artists including Ed Sheeran, Madonna, Spice Girls and The Rolling Stones to its stage and has been praised for its gladiatorial sense of theatre.

The unique atmosphere at Principality Stadium is the result of unique design features including the retractable roof which traps acoustics to create reverberations around the seating bowl. As well as great sound quality, the ravine-like bowl and steep tiers bring fans closer to the performance.
