Staples Center

1111 S. Figueroa St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015
Not only is this large arena the home of the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers (and their sad-sack cousins, the L.A. Clippers), as well as the WNBA's Sparks and the NHL's Kings, it's also the location of many major rock and pop concerts. Staples Center has been the site of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the Summer X Games, the Grammy Awards, the Pac-10 basketball finals, and various boxing and wrestling matches. The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Britney Spears and Mariah Carey are among the many superstars who've headlined the joint.
