SAN DIEGO -- Petco Park is known as one of the most picturesque stadiums in all the major leagues, but more than just baseball is being served up at the East Village venue.

Known primarily as the home of the Padres, Petco Park has also hosted world-class entertainment, from modern pop to classic rock, and even zombies.

In May, Billy Joel rocked a sold-out Petco Park. But the Piano Man is just one of a long line of performers who take center field at the ballpark.

In November 2005, the Rolling Stones were the first major musical act to play at Petco Park. The list later included Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Aerosmith, Madonna and then the Rolling Stones again.

And it's not just music taking over. Tennis fans saw the Davis Cup and hoop fans saw San Diego State play USD last fall.

The field has also been transformed to host golfers, international rugby and soccer, along with supercross and Monster Jam.

But it's not just monster trucks taking over Petco Park. Zombies have taken over the park's terrace at Comic-Con, giving fans a real-life Walking Dead experience.

And in December, the park trades the boys of summer for Holiday Wonderland.

The Padres will host the 87th MLB All-Star Game at Petco Park on July 12. You can watch the pre-game special on FOX 5 beginning at 2 p.m. followed by the game at 4:30 p.m.
