Midland To Revive Hollywood Honky-Tonk The Palomino

Midland is set to perform at historic honky-tonk The Palomino on Oct. 15. The North Hollywood venue, which closed as a music hall in 1995, once featured headliners such as Merle Haggard, Charlie Rich, Emmylou Harris and Jerry Lee Lewis, and served as a launching pad for artists including Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, and Dwight Yoakam. The Palomino did re-open as a concert venue for one night in 2018 as part of a fundraiser concert to benefit the Valley Relics Museum.
