Michael Jackson, U2, Madonna, the Rolling Stones, Genesis - and even Gary Glitter! have all entertained huge crowds with concerts in this arena. Although no permanent facilities exist, and parking can be a trial, crowds of over 100,000 have attended such events.
The 21st Century will hopefully see more of the same! Robbie Williams performed at Roundhay Park on September 8th and 9th 2006 - a sell-out event!
The Park Arena is a natural ampitheatre which provides the venue for many special events ranging from sports days to major pop concerts and the spectacular bonfire and firework displays on 5th November. In more recent years the annual bonfire has been relocated to the field alongside the 'Tram Park'.
The terracing cut into the hillside is known as 'Hill 60', named to remember Leeds soldiers who died in the first word way around 'Hill 60' in Ypres, Belgium.
