Billboard Magazine Talent Forum Awards Dinner – June 4, 1976

The Billboard Magazine Talent Forum for the first time gave awards to performing artists as well as behind-the-scenes professionals. The top prize for Talent Attraction of 1975 went to the Eagles, for being as Bill Graham (Day on the Green promoter and Awards Dinner emcee) put it, “great songwriters, great singers and great performers”. The award was accepted by Don Henley and Randy Meisner at the Billboard Magazine Talent Forum Awards Dinner on June 4, 1976 at the Beverly Hilton. This was the second annual Forum Awards, with the first being in 1975.

The top concert event of 1975 was the Day on the Green concert of August 1975 at Oakland Stadium with Peter Frampton and Fleetwood Mac. The Eagles were at the Day On the Green for 1975 on June 29, 1975.
