Skullcandy makes the Hammersmith Palais #STAYLOUD for one more night
The spirit of the Hammersmith Palais was brought back to life for one more night by Skullcandy as one of the UK’s most exciting young live acts, Peace played an exclusive show in the gym that now stands on the site of the legendary venue.
The legendary London music venue immortalised in a song by The Clash opened its doors in 1919 and played host to thousands of music nights of jazz, swing, pop, rock, bhangra and ska over its 88-year history.
The countless list of artists that have played the Palais include: The Clash, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and The Sex Pistols before it closed down in 2007.
The area has since been developed and to honour its musical routes, PureGym, which is on the current site of the old venue opened its doors to host the exclusive gig so the Palais could stay loud once more.
The event was the first in Skullcandy’s European #STAYLOUD series, which was created by KINC and will see the audio brand celebrate the memory of once great music venues in London, Paris and Berlin.
Each of the shows forms part of a video series by acclaimed music directors Mathy and Fran that will tell the story of these once iconic music venues and convey the energy of that special evening. The next show in Paris will be announced in June 2015.
