New venue would be UK’s largest concert arena

Plans for a new live music and entertainment venue in Stratford designed by Populous have gone in for planning.

The venue, which will be known as MSG Sphere, would hold up to 21,500 people making it the largest concert arena in the UK.

The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG), the firm behind the New York concert and sports venue of the same name, is developing the arena on a 1.9ha site in Stratford that was used as a coach park during the 2012 London Olympics.
