The famous Hollywood Palladium opened its doors in September 23, 1940, with a concert by Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra and the soon-to-be-famous Frank Sinatra. It was producer/promoter Maurice M. Cohen's dream to create the worlds largest dining and dancing palace. In 1961, it became "home" to Lawrence Welk's popular weekly television show. The Palladium has seen numerous movie stars, rock stars, Presidents, and other dignitaries pass through its doors, such as: Rita Hayworth, Tyrone Power, Lana Turner, The Rolling Stones, James Brown, Rod Stewart, Robert Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, and England's Princess Margaret, to name but a few. It has also been the site of many Awards events.
