Forest Hills Stadium News

The DNAInfo website has an article today about plans for the Forest Hills Stadium, including that The New York Pops may play the Stadium  (I had heard back in December this was in discussion, so there must be something to it). But the article also says this has not been confirmed yet.

And I don't know what to make of the Idina Menzel part - why the West Side Tennis Club president would say she was going to perform and then it is being denied by her team...

Forest Hills Concert Organizers to Address Residents' Concerns at Meeting


  1. I don't understand the issue about the concert last year being oversold. They knew the seating capacity of the stadium, even though there were no seats, just the cement. Did they sell more tickets than the amount of seats that there used to be? Or was it just poor crowd control and cranky patrons? As for the Adele Dazeem, oops, I mean Idina Menzel thing, come on, it's the same type of thing that happens with real estate deals around here. Someone starts negotiating with someone, the talks break down, but not before word gets out that there were negotiations, which people have already mistaken as hard fact.

  2. In either event, would have loved to see her (Idina Menzel) at the stadium. Sorry to hear those negotiations fell through.
