L.A. Memorial Coliseum

Map & Directions 3911 S. Figueroa St.
Los Angeles, CA 90037


LA Weekly's Description

Constructed in 1921 in Exposition Park next to the USC campus, the massive open-air stadium has been the longtime home field of the university's football team, the Trojans. Over the years, the Coliseum has also been the home to pro football's L.A. Rams, L.A. Raiders and L.A. Express, and was the site of the NFL's first two Super Bowls. It also served as the short-term ballpark for the L.A. Dodgers when the MLB team first moved here from Brooklyn in 1958. Unusually, the Coliseum has been the site of two separate Olympics, in 1932 and again in 1984. With a capacity that's been as high as 100,000 over the years, the stadium tends to host the biggest names in rock and pop, including the Rolling Stones, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, Van Halen, The Who, Nirvana, Joan Baez, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Peter Gabriel. Meanwhile, motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel once headlined as one of the Coliseum's non-musical high-volume performers.

    Before Andy Reid was coaching some of the best offenses in the NFL, he was dominating the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition. Easy to see why, he was 2x the size of his fellow "pee-wee" players.

    The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is the only stadium in the world to host the Olympic Games twice - once in 1932 and again in 1984.
