Once the home of international boxing matches, Luna Park is the largest indoor stadium in Argentina, hosting shows and concerts, including those of the National Symphonic Orchestra. Numerous international stars have played here, and seeing them in Argentina costs significantly less than in North America and Europe. Though they had actually met previously, legend states that it was here, at a 1944 fundraiser for the victims of the San Juan earthquake, that Juan Perón first met the young actress Eva Duarte, changing Argentine history forever. The song "On This Night of a Thousand Stars" in the musical commemorates this event.
