Lagardère Live Entertainment celebrated the grand opening of Bordeaux Métropole Arena on 24 January with Depeche Mode!
Watch the video of the grand opening celebration:
The Lagardère Sports and Entertainment subsidiary, which operates the venue, served as principal for the project, in conjunction with Bouygues Bâtiment Centre Sud-Ouest and architect Rudy Ricciotti.
Spanning 17,000 sq.m (including 3,500 sq.m of reception space), Bordeaux Métropole Arena – located alongside the Garonne River in Floirac – can accommodate the biggest local and international music and sporting events.
Boasting some of the best acoustics in France, the arena is designed to be “innovative, modern and modular,” with more than 20 possible configurations that can hold anywhere from 2,500 to 11,300 spectators per event, making it one of France’s five largest venues by capacity.
More than 250,000 tickets had already been sold by late March, and the event schedule is filling up, with performances scheduled by Imagine Dragons, Vianney and Le Cirque du Soleil along with summer shows from Shakira and Lenny Kravitz!
