If you’re going to be hitting one of the Eagles shows that are heralding the grand re-opening of the Forum in Inglewood, check out this great photo tour taking you inside and all around the newly remodeled arena from Curbed LA to get you ready.

Listen for your chance to win tickets to catch the Eagles there each morning with Stu, Tiffany, and Jimbo. Plus, we’ll be breaking them out all weekend long as we celebrate the best damn state in the country with a California At The Top Weekend!

Or just go with the Band:
Or Volume 4:
Here are all the details for you. They’re talking about $60 bucks a pair, so should you find yourself at a loss for what to buy me, I’m usually a size 12. Just sayin’…
To get ready for the opening of the Eagles two week run of shows newly refurbished Forum in Inglewwood, they’ve built a giant “Hotel California” record on top of the building. Check out the video:

The audience consisted of about 120 scientists and contest winners, and because of the “fragile environment”, the music couldn’t be amplified in the traditional sense. Instead, amplifiers were enclosed in isolation cabinets, and the crowd had to listen though HEADPHONES.
The official trailer for 22 Jump Street was just released today! It looks pretty funny. What do you think?
