The Greek Theatre is by far the greatest outdoor theatre for live entertainment. Every seat is good in the tradition of ancient Greek amphitheaters. The acoustics are wonderful. It might help to bring a cushion as the stone gets a little hard after a while, and make sure to layer up for the unpredictable temperatures, but don't miss an opportunity... More

I recently took a trip to California to see a 2 night special event show featuring A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, and I right off the bat have to say this is an awesome venue to see a show.

I can't believe I had waited so long to enjoy a concert at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA! We recently saw Willie Nelson at the Greek. It was a general admission show, we lined up minutes before the gates opened and had no trouble getting good seats. The seats are concrete benches, bring a blanket, or other padded type... More

sit in the seats not the lawn. Too long of lines for beer and wine... go early and buy two.. the limit so you don't have to get up and down. the sound here is perfect but bring layer cause no matter what it gets cold at night in our beautiful berkeley hills.

Amazing venue with great acoustics. We came to see The Postal Service and it was a great show. I will definitely come back for good artists.

We had such a fun time for 2 night and 1 afternoon at the Greek seeing the Furthur Band. We loved that from everywhere in the venue you can enjoy the music to the fullest. The music, food and cocktails were delish!

This was a great theater modeled after the historic Greek and Roman theaters. I liked the beautiful facade of old columns . It's outdoor seating and I imagine all the seats are 'good' seats. A lot of fun to be in this Theater.
