In 1967 a benefit party for the underground newspaper 'International Times' was held at Alexandra Palace named 'The 14 Hour Technicolor Dream'. The all-night event featured performances from poets, artists and musicians including Yoko Ono and Pink Floyd.


In the same year that the band released their single 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love', Queen performed live at Ally Pally during their 'Crazy Tour of London' shows.


It's hard to imagine now, but in 1989 The Stone Roses had only just released their immediately successful self-titled debut album.  During the same year, the band played their first ever London gig at Alexandra Palace at the height of the 'Madchester' craze.


In the early nineties, the Brit Awards began a three-year residency at the iconic Alexandra Palace.  Performances include Take That, Pet Shop Boys, Elton John and Madonna!


In 2009 Jay Z performed to a sold-out gig and was joined by Mr Hudson where the pair used the crowd to record part of the video for his massive hit 'Young Forever'.
