This is the worst concert venue in Southern California to access when its going to be a sold out crowd. The local police are useless at directing traffic to get there and the onsite staff don't know how to deal with parking. From the intersection of Bake parkway and Irvine Center to finally parking is an hour and 15 minutes... More

Saw a Rush concert here. Great venue, with fairly wide rows for good leg room and easy to walk through when packed. Each row is higher than the next so everyone can get a good view of the stage. A lot of concession stands and multiple bathrooms for convenience. Overall great concert venue.

Bought ticket online for the same night for Van Halen. Good venue, better to get a seat instead of grass area. Lots of restrooms and snack place. Bring light sweater as it can get chilly at night from ocean breeze.

Any seat is like you're front row. I've seen 5 concerts here and I will continue to keep going. Amazing sound and artists!

The venue is dilapidated and disorganized. The restrooms are inadequate. Security pretended to check bags. Allow extra time to enter. There are too few ticket takers and long disorganized lines. But the horrible departing traffic chaos will keep me from returning. Nobody directed traffic, no lanes, all cars had to merge into one single gate line. Tempers fared. Scary car... More

Went to a concert here last weekend & was NOT impressed with this venue. Watched people climb over a fence into the venue & security did nothing. Walking to get to our seats was a trek with cracked sidewalks with holes in them. I get having to haul up stairs for concerts as I've been to many at other outdoor... More

I have been to just about every venue in Southern California and I must say this is the absolute worst. First off the parking is horrendous. Abunch of dirt, no lines and getting out of the place is even worse sitting in the parking lot for 30 minutes just to get a place in the line of cars to leave... More

My wife and I visited this place, which is now called the Irvine Meadows, to see the Bryan Adams concert. The parking was a nightmare as there were not enough staff to direct traffic and park vehicles. There is a long walk from the parking to the seating area and the seating is all outdoors, which is not great on... More
