The AccorHotels Arena is the largest indoor venue in France. It opened on 3 February 1984 after more than two years of construction. Since then, events have been held year-round. The world's greatest musicians have performed there. The arena was inaugurated by the Scorpions, and since then, performers at the AccorHotels Arena have included Céline Dion, Julien Clerc, David Bowie and, more recently, One Direction. The records are held by Jacques Higelin, who stayed there for an entire month in 1983, and Mylène Farmer, who performed to sold-out crowds 33 times.
In addition to concerts, the AccorHotels Arena also hosts world-class sporting events. These include annual events such as the Paris six-day cycling race and International Jumping, and special events such as the European Athletics Championships. The AccorHotels Arena is home to the Sonja-Henie Ice Rink which features some of the world's most remarkable displays of skating prowess, and is open to the public.
