Dodger Stadium History

Stationed less than 25 miles from the California coastline, Dodger Stadium enjoys the brilliance of glittering cityscapes alongside palm trees, coastal breeze and the temperate weather of a Mediterranean climate.

In addition to serving as home of the Dodgers, the stadium is a popular venue for concerts and other events. In recent years, the stadium has hosted concerts by musical artists such as Elton John, Lady Gaga, Billy Joel, Beyoncé, Metalachi, Madonna, and Taylor Swift, as well as stand-up comedian Gabriel Iglesias.

In 2022, Dodger Stadium celebrated its 60th anniversary with murals, memorabilia and a new bronze statue. This included murals of Civil Rights activist Jackie Robinson, who broke the baseball color barrier in 1947. The stadium also added a sculpture of teammate Sandy Koufax to the Jackie Robinson statue in center field.
