They’re about to reopen the old Los Angeles Forum after some serious refurbishments with the first events being six consecutive gigs by the Eagles.
To mark the occasion, they’re erecting what appears to be the largest LP record on the roof. It’ll be a spinning reproduction of the Eagles’ Hotel California that’s 407 feet in diameter and rotate at 17 mph. The whole apparatus weighs about 25 tons.
But if this thing spins on top of the Forum like it’s some big turntable, who’s going to see it? Flights in and out of LAX, which involves about 1700 flights a day.
I’ll be flying in and out of LA between January 15 and 25–the dates of the gigs and when the record is supposed to be turning–so I’ll try and get some pictures.
