Élysée Montmartre

The Élysée Montmartre burning.

Open in 1807, the Élysée Montmartre (French: L'Élysée Montmartre) is a music venue, at 72 Boulevard de Rochechouart, in Paris, France. It has a capacity of 1,200 patrons. The nearest métro station is Anvers.

In 1900, the venue was damaged by fire, and was re-decorated. The concert hall suffered another fire on 22 March 2011, and is currently closed to the public.

It is one of the most famous music venues in the city. The venue can also host boxing matches.

In 1992, Steel Pulse released their first live album, Rastafari Centennial - Live in Paris, which was recorded over three nights at the venue.

David Bowie's performance, during The Hours... Tour, on 14 October 1999, was filmed and recorded, with three songs later appearing on the CD single of "Survive".

In 2007, The Counting Crows re-released their debut album, August and Everything After, as a two-disc deluxe edition. The second disc is a recording of a performance at the theatre on 9 December 1994.

The venue is mentioned in The Roots' song, "You Got Me", as a place where the subject saw the band and narrator perform, even though they both lived in the same building in Philadelphia. On 22 March 2011 in the morning, the building caught fire.[1]

Finnish Metal band Sonata Arctica has been the very last band to perform at "Élysée" before it caught on fire March 16th, 2011.
