Arsenal Football Club has revised its plans for additional concerts at Emirates Stadium following consultation with local residents and politicians.

The Club currently has planning consent to hold three concerts a year and had proposed applying for permission to stage a further six concerts, making nine in total, from 2014.

Following a consultation exercise with local people, the Club has reduced the proposed number of extra concerts and has submitted a planning application to Islington Council asking for permission for three additional concerts a year from 2014.

The application, which would allow a maximum of six concerts a year, was submitted today (Friday) after the Club held two public meetings and received written responses from 160 residents, both for and against the extra concerts.

Arsenal Communications Director Mark Gonnella said: “We have listened to the views of local people and as a result have reduced the number of additional concerts we want to stage at Emirates Stadium. We will also be introducing new measures to ensure that any inconvenience is kept to the absolute minimum.”

Muse and Green Day are scheduled to perform at Emirates Stadium this summer. Muse will appear on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. Green Day are performing on Saturday, June 1.
