Major new music venue for west London in £1.3billion Olympia redevelopment
1st December 2020 (Evening Standard). Olympia is set to return to the rock concert circuit after it was revealed that the £1.3 billion overhaul of the exhibition centre will include a 4,400 capacity live music venue. Many of the biggest names in music appeared at Olympia during its heyday including Jimi Hendrix, Rod Stewart, Pink Floyd, Status Quo, Procol Harum, The Cure and Primal Scream. It has hosted few major music events over the past decade although rap star Skepta performed a sellout show there last year.
