This historic Hollywood theater was built in an art deco, Streamline Moderne style and opened in 1940. Since then, the Palladium has hosted such performers and legendary figures as the Rolling Stones, Glenn Miller, Richard Pryor, the Ramones, Tommy Dorsey, Stevie Wonder, the Clash, Betty Grable, Jay-Z, El Tri, Martin Luther King Jr., Bob Dylan, the Cramps, James Brown, Elton John & Leon Russell, Barbra Streisand, Nine Inch Nails, the Strokes, Black Flag, Katy Perry, Rage Against the Machine, Fugazi and Led Zeppelin, as well as the Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe awards. After a long renovation, the Palladium was reopened in 2008 by promoters Live Nation, who restored the grand old ballroom to its former state, with glittery chandeliers and other new furnishings, as well as a vastly improved sound system. An upstairs balcony circles the room, and there are a half dozen full bars scattered around the venue. Paid parking is available in the Palladium's adjoining lot and on the street. All ages.
