The Schalke VELTINS-Arena not only stands for first-class football events. The stadium is also in high demand as a venue for major concerts by national and international stars, and not only in Gelsenkirchen and within NRW.

No matter whether it’s hip rock concerts, mega events like Olé auf Schalke or traditional Christmas singing – there is 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 ultra-modern equipment and space for up to 70,000 spectators, it guarantees extraordinary and unforgettable moments.

State-of-the-art stage technology and a completely reworked sound system, the new video cube installed in the summer 2016, the retractable playing field, movable grandstands, the lockable roof or the RFID-based payment card Knappenkarte are just some of the technical highlights that have turned the Schalke arena into a real masterpiece and made it the ideal concert venue.

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