All hail the bejewelled return of the once problem-plagued Hollywood Palladium. If you’re of an older, kinder generation, you might remember its opening night in 1940, where $1 got you in the door to see Tommy Dorsey with a young singer named Frank Sinatra. If you’re a little younger, you might remember the riots after the Slayer show, the Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch Show, and the one that occurred in 1964 at — get this — a JAZZ FESTIVAL. Apparently, at the latter, the musicians staged a walk-off to protest not being paid (sound familar?); the audience didn’t like that one bit and started throwing bottles as well as fists. We imagine a similar situation should The Jonas Brothers decide their paycheck isn’t up to snuff.
