Schalke's VELTINS-Arena not only stands for first-class soccer events. The stadium is also more than popular as a venue for major concerts by national and international stars, and not just in Gelsenkirchen and NRW.

Whether it's groovy rock concerts, mega events such as Olé auf Schalke or the traditional Christmas carol singing - there's something for every music fan at the concerts in Gelsenkirchen.

The VELTINS-Arena is one of the most popular venues for concerts in North Rhine-Westphalia and, with its state-of-the-art facilities and up to 70,000 spectators, provides an extraordinary and incomparable experience.

State-of-the-art stage and completely revised sound technology, the new video cube installed in summer 2016, the retractable pitch, movable grandstands, the lockable roof and the RFID-based payment method Knappenkarte are just some of the technical highlights that make the Arena auf Schalke a true masterpiece and the perfect concert venue.

Enthusiastic music fans saw international and national music highlights such as U2, Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Depeche Mode, Helene Fischer, Herbert Grönemeyer and PUR at Schalke.
