If you are driving down Sunset Boulevard on Thursday, October 15th, better keep a look out! You may be able to see Tower Records as it was in the glory days.
With the rebirth of vinyls many people don’t want stores such as the iconic Tower Records to disappear. Although the company went out of business, the iconic building in West Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard was saved by Gibson Guitars from being torn down last year.
Now the WeHo landmark will be open for all eyes to see. The only catch is that the exterior will be the only thing returning and for just one night. A new documentary called All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records will be exploring the company’s history. Gibson along with the filmmakers will be working to restore the beautiful store front.
The film is out in theaters this Friday, October 16th.
The premiere festivities will be the day before at the one and only Tower Records on Sunset! Eagles of Death Metal, a side project of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme will be there to celebrate the special event with a performance.
