Jay-Z To Reopen Infamous Frank Sinatra Venue In Los Angeles

August 27, 2008
Jay-Z To Reopen Infamous Frank Sinatra Venue In Los AngelesUS rapper Jay-Z will reopen the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles in October – 68 years after Frank Sinatra first opened the venue.

The rapper will be backed by a 12-piece band for his performance, which follows more than a year of extensive renovations at the venue.

The reworking of the 4000 capacity venue includes a new dance floor and improvements to the stage infrastructure.

Since opening in 1940, the Hollywood Palladium has played host to such artists as the Rolling Stones, Metallica, Led Zeppelin and The Who.

In a statement, Jay-Z said: "Just as Frank ushered in a golden era, I hope this opening will mark the beginning of a resurgence in generation-defining live music.”
