EUGENE, Ore. — The 2012 Olympic Track and Field Trials bring a lot of big-name stars to Eugene.
It also brings in top-notch entertainment from the past.
MC Hammer made a rare appearance to Eugene on Friday night. No, there weren’t any famous parachute pants at this event.
The rapper and his son performed in front of a packed house at the Downtown Athletic Club.
A dozen models took the stage before the rapper performed to model the new line of Oiselle women’s running apparel for the Spring ’13 season.
Hammer says this was his first time visiting Hayward Field and he was blown away.
“We went inside and did the exhibitions and so forth. It is a great festive atmosphere there. It is a track-only stadium. Wow! It is just so well done,” said Hammer.
