Open in 1807, the Élysée Montmartre (French: L'Élysée Montmartre) is a music venue, at 72 Boulevard de Rochechouart, in Paris, France. It has a capacity of 1,200 patrons. The nearest métro station is Anvers.
In 1900, the venue was damaged by fire, and was re-decorated. The concert hall suffered another fire on March 22, 2011, and is currently closed to the public.
It is one of the most famous music venues in the city. The venue can also host boxing matches.
In 2007, The Counting Crows re-released their debut album, August and Everything After, as a two-disc deluxe edition. The second disc is a recording of a performance at the theatre on December 9, 1994.
The venue is mentioned in The Roots' song, "You Got Me", as a place where the subject saw the band and narrator perform, even though they both lived in the same building in Philadelphia. On March 22, 2011 in the morning, the building caught fire.
