Building on the tradition of Forest Hills Stadium, where the likes of The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan have played, the summer 2015 concert season opened with Grammy-nominated singer Ed Sheeran on May 28 and May 29 and rock legends The Who on May 30. Ed Sheeran said the Forest Hills Stadium was one of the coolest places he ever played. “The Who Hits 50!” tour, which featured original members Roger Daltrey and Pete Towshend, proved how to rock a packed stadium a half-century later. They performed classics including “I Can’t Explain,” “I Can See For Miles,” “Pinball Wizard” and “See Me, Feel Me.” Michael Mastrobuoni of Wantagh had a front-row seat and shared some memorable moments. “Roger Daltrey hushed me since I yelled out to Pete Townshend about how good they still sounded,” he said. “Also, Pete threw a guitar pick, which I actually caught.

Each of the three nights hosted nearly 14,000 people including nearly five hundred who fancied dinner on a nice grass tennis court in front of the West Side Tennis Clubhouse. According to Roland Meier, president of the West Side Tennis Club, the concerts have been good for the culture of the membership of the club. “We are getting a younger membership at the club lately and some top notch tennis players too.”
