L.A. Live, the $2.5 billion entertainment complex rising next to Staples Center, is home to the Nokia Theatre, the GRAMMY Museum, Club Nokia, Conga Room, Lucky Strike, ESPN Zone, New Zealand Natural Ice Cream, The Farm of Beverly Hills, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, Lawry's Carvery, Yard House and Rock'N Fish. Coming in 2009 are Katsuya, Rosa Mexicana, Trader Vic's, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill and Regal Cinemas.Detailed by our downtown bloggers, the L.A. Live complex is abuzz this week, with restaurant openings, a GRAMMY nomination show, the unveiling of the GRAMMY Museum and the holiday show kickoff. The rumor around South Park is that Britney Spears will be on hand to kick off "Light of the Angels," L.A. Live's holiday multi-media show, on Thursday, 12/4/8. Each hour on the hour from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the Christmas season, "Light of the Angels" plays its seven-minute program, harnessing the power of more than 1 million lights to create a spectacle of light and music in the L.A. Live courtyard. UPDATE: The press release for tonight's event says a "SURPRISE CELEBRITY SUPERSTAR" will be appearing, along with USC football coach Pete Carroll, Adam Carolla and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Hmm, wondering if this surprise guest is Britney Spears? Spears' rumored appearance would make perfect sense. The singer is getting set to kick off a tour produced by AEG Live, the giant company's live entertainment arm. That tour kicks off in March of 2009. Yaay!
Bundle up to bear the freezing (ok not freezing) Cali weather, I'll be in the earmuffs!
