... IIRC for Italian venues:

Rome & Milan: 11000 to 15000
Pesaro: about 10000
Florence: about 8000

all are indoor sports arenas; real capacity at each event depends on specific configuration (stage size and position).

Hyde Park: "Offially" is 80,000. However, Ticket Companies often are allowed to sell up to 100,000 for some reason.

Brixton: 4300 I believe

Wembley Pavillion: 10,000

Common misunderstanding regarding Antwerpen: with a big concert the capacity is only just over 10.000!

They miss out on part of the floor (for the stage) and over 1/6 of all the seats (for stage/backstage)

Ah I'm sorry. Got this info about Antwerpen from www.worldstadiums, but their info is not up to date. According to www.sportpaleis.be the capacity is: 12.000 permanent seats and 1780 seats or 5000 standing places. So the total capacity would be 13800 or 17000.

No, the maximum is almost 18000 but for big rock concerts they apparently sell only 14500 tickets. The recent R.E.M. concert in Sazka Arena was sold out and the figure was 14500.

'Manchester has a capacity of 21,000.'

Yeah when there's a boxing game. It's probably less when Queen perform.

The capacity of the Arena Leipzig is 12000, not 7000 (maybe for sport events). Says the homepage and said the newspaper about a recent REM gig.
Scully, have a look at your guestbook! Some more info there...
