The Hollywood Bowl at the MGM Grand is the latest venue to host live entertainment this week, with the Hollywood Walk of Fame becoming the first venue to take place at the venue, which has been a staple of the entertainment industry for nearly 80 years.
“The Hollywood Bowl is a special place, a special space,” said Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey in a statement.
The Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Lakers will all take part in their first NBA All-Star Game at the stadium, with a capacity of about 7,000.
While there is no date set for the games, they will take place during the All-American game in New York on Sunday.
The event, which will be broadcast live on the All Access app, will include NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr and LA Clippers President Kevin Pritchard.
“The Lakers and Clippers have been a fixture in Los Angeles since the early 1970s and it’s a great honor to have them come to the Los Angeles,” said Lacey.
Losing the event would be a significant blow for the Clippers, who have won five straight NBA championships.
However, the Los Angels are hoping that the event will draw fans back to the city to see the new stadium and its spectacular skyline.
“We are so excited to bring this special event to Los Angeles and we are proud to welcome the NBA All Star game to our city,” said LA Clippers Executive Vice President of Communications and Marketing Tom Holmoe in a news release.
There are plans to open the gates of the stadium in 2019.
Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday for $2,400.
