Stadium Hosted The Beatles and U.S. Open Tournament
A storied New York City sports and concert site that once hosted the U.S. Open tournament and the Beatles is poised to return as a music venue.
The New York Times says Forest Hills Tennis Stadium officials and a promoter have agreed to hold 19 concerts at the Queens site over the next three years.
The stadium is undergoing renovation after years of neglect. The first concert, featuring Mumford & Sons, is set for Aug. 28. It'll be followed by six in each of the next three summers.
Club President Roland Meier says it's hoped that the concerts will help finance the refurbishing of the stadium and lead to the return of tennis and other top events.
