A replica of the Eagles’ iconic album “Hotel California” has been made into the “world’s largest record” and placed on the roof of Los Angeles’ fabled Forum venue to celebrate its reopening.

The music icons’ 1977 album has sold over 32 million copies worldwide and now it has come back to life with a vinyl recreation that now stands atop the California landmark.

The replica spans 5.7 acres, 407 feet in diameter, and even spins at 17 miles per hours – but does not actually play music.

The stunt is to celebrate the reopening of the Los Angeles venue, which will feature a run of six shows by the Eagles later this month.

The group is no stranger to the Forum – Don Henley and his band played back-to-back shows there in 1975, 1976 and 1979, and the bandmates returned to the venue in 2009 to rehearse for their Long Road Out of Eden tour.
