It's been over 25 years since the major record labels stopped servicing consumer vinyl, but the format is alive and well in 2014 - with increased sales and perhaps one of the largest publicity stunts ever.  Concert promoters are using a 407-foot record replica to promote an upcoming Eagles' concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Visible from the air, the disc sits atop the stadium - spinning, just like a real record.

Passengers on roughly 1,700 flights arriving daily at LAX throughout January will be able to see the 407-foot-wide printed vinyl disc – which actually spins at 17 miles per hour and was constructed by a crew of over 75 workers – in honor of the venue’s $100 million renovation effort, according to officials.

Built in just 10 days by Glendale-based promotion company Pop2Life, the nation’s only 120-foot aluminum truss circle is composed of 250,000 square feet of printed vinyl and over 50,000 pounds – about 25 tons – of materials, with letters as tall as the iconic Hollywood sign.

Promoters are bringing the Eagles to the Forum starting on January 15, 2014 as part of their kick-off for the newly-opened venue.
