London Olympics

After being chosen to host the Olympics in 1944, the games had to be cancelled due to WWII. And so in 1948, post-war, these games became known as the 'Austerity Games.'

Live Aid

One of the most iconic moments in musical history. In 1985 this 16-hour-long concert, held simultaneously in Philadelphia, became known as 'the day that changed the world.'

Queen Live at Wembley

After Live Aid, in 1986, Queen returned to Wembley to play two nights. This iconic stage show also turned out to be the band's final show before Freddie Mercury’s' death.

Michael Jackson BAD tour

This tour broke records as Jackson sold out the stadium 7 nights in a row with a total audience number of 504,000!

What People Are Saying About Wembley Stadium

Really good tour, enthusiastic and friendly guide, great for the kids

Was able to get on an earlier scheduled tour immediately, no waiting, tour was efficient and fun, good interaction between guide and the group. Was expecting the small mobile screen to be used more, perhaps opportunities there, but not disappointed.
