    We went for the U2 concert back in July. The concert venue was terrific. Security did a great and professional job. But they let people smoke so be prepared for that. It was definitely not an American...  more »

    This architectural success no doubt and a great comfort for the spectators, however after having attended many sports events, football and rugby, it must be admitted that this speaker of 80,000 places generates less atmosphere than the smaller Parc des Princes and its 50,000 places.

    To have seen several matches of the France rugby team, I'm convinced that it's a beautiful Stadium, but what a waste however that it is used only a few days in the year...

    Amazing stadium. Went to see Guns N' Roses perform. Was easy to get in and good presence of security so you never felt unsafe. Unknown to me they split the standing tickets in half and sold more expensive standing tickets to those who knew about it. This meant we had to stand half way back and the sound quality was pretty poor in spots. Moved around and found a space under a speaker. 10 euro a pint was also a ripoff.

    Structurally impressive. Very clean. Food and merchandise vendors outside of the venue before the concert, plus portable washrooms. A definite plus. Many restaurants nearby. Great concert experience.

    Great place with a friendly staff. Tours are reasonably price (15 Euros). Make sure to check the times for tours and whether you are interested in a tour in French or English. Not as many English tours so much sure you know the time.

    Great Experience! Everything is well organised and it's easy to reach it. There is also a decathlon near the stadium, where you can buy useful staff to protect you from the sun.. in case you have to wait a lot under the sun, like we did when we were waiting for the Coldplay. Best concert ever!!

    Very good stadium with super good logistics managing big crowds (70 000) in and out. Good sound for open concert. Toilets very accessible
