Sorry, somehow this thread was hijacked to talk:

Fine, but it remains a soccer stadium (or maybe multipurpose
stadium/hall), the fact that there were some concerts doesn't make
this a concert hall. It is quite common for big rock concerts to be in
soccer stadiums.

-1, far too generic, it would be a huge step back. There is no point
in having endlessly structures tagging like amenity=poi,
poi:type:cultural=20%, poi:type:sports=80%,
parties=if_you_pay_enough_you_can_rent_almost_any_place, ... if it is
a soccer stadium which already has its tagging.
