Wembley Stadium is one of the most important stadiums in the UK, hosting major football matches and musical acts – it is where the FA Cup Final and home matches of the England National Football team are played. At 90,000 seats it is the second largest stadium in Europe and the largest stadium in the United Kingdom, and consequently one of the most expensive stadiums ever built at a cost of £798 million.
The stadium’s most prominent features are the partially retractable roof and the 134-metre-high (440 feet) Wembley Arch, the longest single span roof structure in the world. The stadium has a one-kilometer long circumference.
Amongst its most famous events, Wembley Stadium hosted the Live Earth concert in 2007 and the commemorative Concert for Diana, as well as the 2012 Summer Olympics; it later on welcomed acts like Muse, George Michael, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Madonna, Oasis and AC/DC. Take That played a record breaking eight nights at Wembley Stadium in 2011; it is the fastest and biggest selling tour in UK history with 623,737 people in attendance on those nights alone.
