The U Arena is set to open in October this year, with the Rolling Stones playing there on October 19, 22 and 25. Next up are the Super­cross de Paris motorbike show and Stars 80, with a large line-up of singing stars who made their names in the 1980s.

This new arena venue, pronounced ‘you’ as in English (the name also refers to its shape), is set to be the largest in Europe with the ability to accommodate 40,000 concert-goers.

Describing itself as ‘Europe’s biggest stage’, it will also have one of the world’s largest screens (1,400m2).
