Former Location –
The Singer Bowl was built in 1964 by the Singer Sewing Machine Company. It was an open-air stadium, which held 15,000 – 18,000 people and was used for the 1964 World’s Fair. It later hosted various Olympic trials and concerts over the years, including a 1968 concert headlined by The Doors with The Who as the opening act. Jimi Hendrix also performed there in August 1968.
The stadium was renovated in 1977 and reopened in 1978 as two seperate venues, The Louis Armstrong Stadium, and the adjacent Grandstand which was mainly the original stadium. Both stadiums are part of the present-day USTA National Tennis Center.
