Eventim Apollo London

What’s On at Eventim Apollo

Eventim Apollo events are hugely varied, so there is always something to look forward to no matter your taste. Top of the list is a busy October with a range of concerts to book tickets for. This includes the stars of hit television series Nashville visiting the Eventim as part of a big UK tour. December is also a month to watch: two nights of Donny Osmond are great for nostalgic music and reminiscing, whilst Leona Lewis and Ocean Color Scene offer variety as they visit on tour. We also recommend looking ahead to 2024 and booking early for top comedians including Phil Wang and Sarah Millican.

About the Eventim Apollo

There are few multi-use London venues as iconic as the Eventim Apollo, also known as the Hammersmith Apollo. Since it opened in 1932, this landmark has hosted internationally recognisable acts such as The Beatles, U2, AC/DC, Blondie, Penn & Teller, Chris Rock and countless others. Music of all genres, stand up comedy, touring theatre, television recordings and many other types of events have taken to the stage of the Eventim Apollo. It is a crucial element of London's cultural scene and alongside the Lyric Hammersmith, part of a thriving entertainment offering in the West London borough.

This attractive art-deco building opened as the Gaumont Palace in 1932 and was designed by Robert Cromie, who also designed Prince of Wales Theatre. One of its defining features was a Compton pipe organ. The venue was renamed the Hammersmith Odeon in 1962, a name that many people still know it by. In 1990, under the name Hammersmith Apollo, the building was declared a Grade II listed building by English Heritage.

In the 2010s, AEG Live and Eventim became joint owners of the Apollo. They invested in a significant refurbishment under the direction of award-winning architect Foster Wilson, and in 2013 the venue reopened as the Eventim Apollo.
