The venue, which has hosted gigs by Queen, the Beatles and Oasis, has been sold to Stage C, a joint venture between Ansco Music Club, a division of Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), and CTS Eventim, a German ticking service provider.
The deal is conditional on Stage C obtaining competition clearance in the UK and Germany and HMV Group obtaining shareholder approval.
With a capacity in excess of 5,000, the Apollo has a reputation as one of London’s most iconic entertainment venues featuring live music, comedy and family entertainment events.
AEG currently owns and operates The O2 and IndigO2 in Greenwich, London.
A statement from AEG said: "The Hammersmith Apollo will provide a complementary fit to both AEG and CTS’s existing UK operations."
