Time Out says

Designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, this multipurpose pavillion, inaugurated in 1990, was originally built for the 1992 Olympic Games. It's considered the jewel of what is known as the 'Olympic ring of Montjuïc', which also comprises the Lluís Companys–designed Olympic Stadium and the Bernat Picornell swimming pools. Palau Sant Jordi holds 17,000 spectators for sporting events and another 1,000 for concerts, where the biggest names play. Past performers have included Madonna, Lady Gaga, U2, Adele and more.

Palau Sant Jordi has a separate annex, Sant Jordi Club, that's used for smaller concerts and sporting events, with a capacity of about 4,600.

What’s on

Bon Iver [NEW DATE]

  • Rock and indie

Bon Iver released one of the most anticipated albums of summer 2019: 'i,i' is the fourth album of Justin Vernon's most celebrated project, which exploded onto the independent music scene more than a decade ago with the magnificent 'For Emma, Forever Ago' (2007). That debut was an album that broke moulds with the use of echo and voice treatment, but Vernon no longer records alone in a cabin isolated from the world as he did then. His sound has become sophisticated over time, on albums like 'Bon Iver, Bon Iver' (2011) and '22, A Million' (2016). Although his work with vocal expression – with all kinds of filters and electronic effects – remains paramount in his music, Bon Iver has increasingly become a live band, which is reflected more than ever in the sound of 'i,i'.

Elton John

  • Pop

Sir Elton John, one of the most acclaimed artists in all of pop history, announced he was retiring from performing live more than a year ago. We weren't sure if it was really true because he's still going strong and could carry on for years to come if he wanted to. But just in case he means business, pay attention to this: John's 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour includes two consecutive dates in Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi. From his debut in 1969, John has sold millions of albums, and you won't want to miss the chance to hear him performing huge hits that have thrived over 50 years of the artist's career, including 'Rocket Man', 'Tiny Dancer', 'Your Song', 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart', and 'Candle in the Wind', which has sold 33 million copies around the world, second of all time only to Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas'. John has played more than 4,000 concerts in over 80 countries, don't miss out on some of his final performances.
