Artists like the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, U2, and Pink Flloyd have all played massive concerts here. Two Super Bowls (I and VII), one World Series (1959), the 1976 Bicentennial Spectacular, and a visit from Pope John Paul II in 1987 were also monumental events. However, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has the even rarer distinction of being the only facility in the world to play host to two Olympiads (1932 and 1984).
