The STAPLES Center is much more than a sports arena. It also has and continues to house some of the most talented people in music. And this year is no exception. As of right now, you can expect to see:

  • Elton John – January 22nd, 23rd, 25th, and the 30th
  • Kelly Clarkson: Meaning of Life Tour – January 26th

Once again, this is only the beginning of what is to come with live music. To stay in the loop on the STAPLES Center schedule, follow them on their Instagram.


While many would have to take a drive to any of these events, when you live at AVEN, you are a short walk away. The same goes for fine dining and museums. Also, you can expect to stay entertained right below your AVEN apartment at the South Park Commons! Stay tuned on our blog, Instagram, and Facebook for event updates and we cannot wait to call you a neighbor.
