Nov 12, 2012 —  There’s nothing like seeing your favorite band or watching a world championship with tens of thousands of fellow fans. All around the world, massive stadiums fill to the brim with enormous crowds ready to root their team to victory or cheer at once-in-a-lifetime live concerts.

World stadiums are home to the most legendary shows and historic events. In American stadiums, fans have witnessed sports history with events ranging from Super Bowl XXV, which was won by a single point, to the X-Games where Tony Hawk landed the first ever 900. Enormous city stadiums all over the country have featured live shows by global pop stars and rock royalty like Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Elton John, and U2.

Over in Europe, stadiums have an age-old history tracing back to the ancient Circus Maximus and the notorious Roman Coliseum. Trading gladiators for less bloody sports, European stadiums now host everything from all-night raves to soccer championships to expansive flea markets.

Whatever you’re looking to see or do, stadiums guarantee to make it bigger and better. With stadiums in virtually every major city, find the biggest and best with our list of favorites from around the world.
