Resurrection of the Legendary Outdoor Venue, Forest Hills Stadium with Mike Luba, Co-President of Madison House Presents

Mike Luba, Co-President of  Madison House Presents led the restoration, reopening, and resurrection of the legendary Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY— a historic outdoor 13,000 person capacity music venue that has welcomed fans to the picturesque New York City neighborhood for nearly 100 years. Originally  designed in the 1920’s as the home of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Forest Hills Stadium began booking concerts in the 1960’s and went on to host some of the most culturally significant performances of the time – Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.

Luba is one of the concert industry’s foremost disruptors and visionaries. Luba orchestrated innovative deals with Jay-Z, U2, Shakira, Zac Brown Band, and Madonna.
