Roxette’s tour venue in Madrid destroyed by fire
MADRID - Palacio de los Deportes, the venue in this city where Roxette was going to play in October, was destroyed by a fire this morning.
Tickets for the concert were to go on sale tomorrow, but now Roxette must first find a substitute venue. Palacio de los Deportes ("Sports Palace" in English) had a capacity of about 14,000 people and was one of the biggest concert venues in Madrid. It was here that Roxette played during their Crash! Boom! Bang! tour in 1994.
One possible place for Roxette's concert might be La Cubierta, a bull-fighting venue in Leganés, 10 kilometers from Madrid.
