Earl's Court London

The Earl's Court Exhibition Centre has become one of the most iconic venues in London since it was opened in 1937, hosting a huge variety of events, ranging from the Olympics to Led Zeppelin concerts. It has been in consistent use since the 1930s, but plans have now been approved to demolish the venue.  Boris Johnson confirmed the plans to demolish the venue in order to build a new residential and retail estate, which will be finished in 2033. Thousands of music, sport and architecture enthusiasts are outraged and upset about this news, as the Exhibition Centre has become a London landmark over the last 75 years.

It is a 20,000 capacity venue, similar to London's O2 Arena, allowing it to play host to the biggest music acts in the world, including Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Madonna and Arctic Monkeys. Arctic Monkeys are due to play two sold-out shows on the 25th and 26th of October, 2013, which are very likely to be the last ever concerts at Earl's Court Exhibition Centre.
