Los Angeles is a city of many nicknames, as it is the kind of place that had something for every person to enjoy. From food, shopping, and of course entertainment, La-La Land has it all! There may be no more iconic venue for sports and entertainment in the City of Angels than the Staples Center. And even though it is the home of four professional sports franchises, this December, a trio of events shows just how diverse of an entertainment Mecca this venue has become in its 20-year history!
Anita Baker | December 20, 2019 (8:00 PM)
In the West Coast Finale of her “Farewell Concert Series”, Anita Baker is bringing her soulful stylings to the stage of the Staples Center for one last time. The eight-time Grammy Award winner has long been regarded as one of the most popular soul singers, whose romantic ballads continue to stand the test of time. Expect hits such as “Sweet Love”, “Giving You the Best That I Got” and “Body and Soul” to ring out to the rafters as Southland gets a chance to bid farewell to this true musical icon!
Basketball Hall of Fame Classic presented by Citi | December 21, 2019 (3:30 PM)
Purple and Gold will be on the court, but The King will not be there for the proceedings. The ‘round ball’ that is being played at the Staples Center during the 2019 Air Force Reserve Basketball Hall of Fame Classic will feature a double bill of NCAA action. First up, the San Diego State Aztecs take on the Utah Utes, leading into the hometown favorite USC Trojans trying to tame the Tigers from LSU. Tip-off for the first game will be at 3:30 PM with the second match-up of the doubleheader slated for 6:00 PM (times are subject to change).
