Paradiso, a legendary Amsterdam venue that's hosted Prince, Nirvana, Kanye West and more across its 54-year history, has finally bought the plot of derelict land next to the venue as part of a plan for the future.

Amsterdam's Paradiso, located in a 140-year-old former church, opened its doors as a place for creative talent in 1968, and has since hosted some of the biggest names in the world including Prince, Nirvana, Kanye West, Adele, the Rolling Stones and more, but after bricks came down in the basement during a Hang Youth concert, the venue has been looking for ways to secure its future due to not meeting current standards regarding sound insulation, sustainability, public safety and the environment.

Last week Paradiso bought a derelict plot of land situated next to the venue, which will soon be home to offices, an exhibition space, a studio, educational spaces and the new club entrance.

According to a press release, the expansion is estimated to cost arounnd 30 million euros, and the venue is looking for investors and donors to bring the plans to life.
