A New Forest In 2012

The new, 14,000-capacity Brussels’ Forest National is expected to be completed and open for business sometime during 2012.

The new venue is being built on a separate site from the 37-year-old, 8,500-capacity building currently in use. Shows will be switched from the old one to the new as soon as it’s ready.

The Forest National staged concerts ever since it opened, presenting a list of acts ranging from Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald to The Rolling Stones and U2.
