Heavy metal and hard rock have forged a deep relationship over the course of the past 35 years with the village of Rosemont.
The then-named Rosemont Horizon opened in 1980, just as metal as a genre was coming of age in large part because of the growing popularity of music videos following MTV's 1981 launch.
In one day, 15,000 socially conscious teenagers saw more celebrities than most adults four times their age are likely to have seen in their lives.
Rosemont’s Allstate Arena was ranked as one of the top stadiums in the world by U.S. industry publication Pollstar.
