Past Shows

Forest Hills Stadium in Queens is a New York gem in the middle of a renaissance.

The Beatles were helicoptered onto the grass courts for two consecutive sold-out shows in 1964. Barbra Streisand took a break from her role in Broadway’s “Funny Girl” to play a concert at the stadium that same year. Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, Diana Ross, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Talking Heads, and The Who also shook the bleachers.

Today, icons such as Paul Simon, Alabama Shakes, and Mumford & Sons are back on stage, bringing an increasing number of fans returning year after year to create a new chapter in the stadium’s legacy.
