Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star in this music-fueled story of the ground-breaking, all girl, teenage rock band of the 1970s: The Runaways. In Theaters March 19th!
Cherie Currie, with her signature Bowie haircut, was The Runaways' lead singer. The band got a few hit songs and platinum albums, while touring around the world right before glam-rock and punk anticipated the 'stadium rock' that was widely accepted in the late 70's. David Bowie offered first extravagant stage performances, then rock with theatre and choreography over world tours. The Glass Spider tour, which began at the Stadion Feijenoord, Rotterdam, seen by three million people, was the culmination of his stadium concept.
The word stadium originates from the Greek word/mesure "stadion" (στάδιον). The oldest known stadium is in Olympia, Greece, where the Olympic Games were held since 776 BC.

In many cases, an American football stadium has been constructed adjacent to a baseball park. The Yankee Stadium was built on a triangular city block in The Bronx, New York City. This resulted in an assymetrical dimension. Before the modern design of football stadia in the United States, many baseball parks, including Fenway Park, the Polo Grounds, Wrigley Field, Tiger Stadium, Griffith Stadium, Forbes Field, Yankee Stadium, etc. were used by the American Football League.

In order to help a stadium maintenance, many American and European sports teams have sold the rights to the name of the facility. This trend began in the 1970s and corporate sponsors became the norm in the last decade. The Nippon Professional Baseball league of Japan, emulating the US system, named many of their teams after their parent corporations. This new trend in corporate naming is easily distinguishable from some of the older parks named Crosley Field, Wrigley Field, etc.

Every Red Sox home game since May 15, 2003, has sold out; in 2008, the park sold out its 456th consecutive Red Sox game, breaking a Major League record. Beginning in 2006, the Red Sox have hosted the "Futures at Fenway" event, where two of their minor-league affiliates play a regular-season doubleheader. The most recent minor-league game held at Fenway had been the Eastern League All-Star Game in 1977. The 2007 game featured Lowell and the Portland Sea Dogs, with both teams winning. The 37-foot-high left-field wall at Fenway Park, known affectionately as the Green Monster, dates back to 1947. In honor of the famed wall, the Red Sox mascot is a furry green monster, named Wally.
