About the venue
The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has a quite eventful history. Opened on May 1st, 1923, as a memorial dedicated to the veterans of the first World War. Over the years, the stadium even had to be expanded, as the number of seats back then wasn't sufficient. At the very beginning, the Coliseum was the largest stadium in the entire city with 75,144 seats. However, with the Olympic Games brewing on the horizon, the stadium was expanded to seat 101,574 people.
But what are the most significant events that took place in the venue? Well, let's take a look:
- Summer Olympic Games, 1932;
- Major League Baseball games in 50s and 60s;
- Wattstax, aka Black Woodstock, 1972;
- California World Music Festival, 1979;
- The Rolling Stones concert (supported by a rising, but yet generally unknown artist – Prince), 1981;
- CONCACAF Gold Cup, 1991;
- X Games IX, 2003;
- Stadium Super Trucks off-road race, 2013;
- Kanye West concert (supported by Drake), 2021.
What's more, in 2028 Los Angeles will host the Summer Olympics with the Memorial Coliseum being the first venue to host some games.
