L.A.‘s Gibson Amphitheatre Will Close to Make Way For Harry Potter Theme Park
The Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal Studios in Los Angeles has announced that it will shut its doors for good come September, when the buildings lease agreement comes to an end. The 6000 person amphitheater, which opened in 1972, will be demolished to make way for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Throughout the years the venue has hosted musical legends such as Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, and Frank Sinatra, as well as other icons like Barack Obama and Pope John Paul II. Events that were scheduled to take place after the demolition date will be moved to other locations. Special lineups to mark the theaters closing will be revealed soon.
