The Eagles 1977 album ‘Hotel California’ has been made into a gigantic vinyl record.

The record has been made to celebrate the reopening of Los Angeles venue The Forum and The Eagles’ six show residency there, which is taking place later this month. The massive LP has a diameter of 407 feet and covers 5.7 acres.

The vinyl record spins at 17 miles per hour, but, reports Rolling Stone, does not actually play music. It took 75 people to make the record and it can be seen from over a mile high, featuring lettering as tall as the ‘Hollywood’ sign in the Hollywood Hills.

The Forum, in the Inglewood suburb of LA, has undergone a $100 million makeover after being purchased by The Madison Square Garden Company – who own New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden – in 2012. Over the years the venue has seen performances from the likes of Elvis, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Guns N’Roses, Nirvana and Iron Maiden.
