Since then, the Palladium has hosted such performers and legendary figures as the Rolling Stones, Glenn Miller, Richard Pryor, the Ramones, Tommy Dorsey, Stevie Wonder, Mott the Hoople, the Clash, Betty Grable, David Bowie & the Spiders From Mars, Jay-Z, El Tri, Martin Luther King Jr., Bob Dylan, the Cramps, James Brown, Elton John & Leon Russell, the Kinks, Barbra Streisand, Lupie Fiasco, Sly & the Family Stone, Nine Inch Nails, T.

After a long renovation, the Palladium was reopened in 2008 by promoters Live Nation, who restored the grand old ballroom to its former state, with glittery chandeliers and other new furnishings, as well as a vastly improved sound system. An upstairs balcony circles the room, and there are a half dozen full bars scattered around the venue. Paid parking is available in the Palladium's adjoining lot and on the street. All ages.
