Leon Russell: The Forum, Los Angeles CA

Jacoba Atlas, Circus, December 1972

WHEN LEON Russell took center stage at the Los Angeles Forum the pre-performance excitement had reached Rolling Stone proportions. As unbelievable as it seemed, Russell sold out four local concerts in less than four days (for a total of about 100,000 people) and scalpers were out in force demanding $20 for seats that originally sold for only $5.
