I was at the venue a couple years ago and choose to remember the outstanding performers, but do have to say, horrible parking, loooong lines for everything, drunk - very drunk patrons, etc. still haunt me. I'm planning to see Lady A tonight, and so excited, but I have to have VIP parking and get a wheelchair at guest services... More

We attended the KROQ Weenie Roast there. They had a side stage on one side of the property that had bands playing for the first few hours and everyone was crowded into such a small area to watch since you weren't allowed to go to your actual seats in the amphitheater until about 4pm or so. It was so hot... More

My wife bought tickets for us to see American Authors, The Script and One Republic. The music was amazing and it was a beautiful night. After the concert ended the real problem began. The way we were funneled out reminded me of herded cattle. They had multiple lines funnel down to a choke point and it took a while to... More

The venue is fine and they have good shows there. Great place to be outside, listen to tunes, eat and drink... However, it has one of the absolute worst parking nightmares after an event when people are trying to leave. I would suggest to be either one of the first or one of the last to leave a show.

While in the region we decided to take in a last minute concert featuring Train. We purchased VIP tickets. They were worth it. The amphitheater truly takes care of the VIP ticket holders. The private bar area was amazing. The private parking and there efforts to get VIP out ahead of others was great. Nice grounds as well. I highly... More

I came here for the Backstreet Boys concert. Awesome venue! They sold alcohol practically at every corner. Only complaint is the lack of restrooms, but maybe it was just the event.

The concert was great! But the venue was a disappointment. There was no order in getting into the venue and to exit was even worse. It took us an hour to get out of the parking lot. The bathroom lines were also huge, maybe 12 stalls for all these women. We had grass tickets. WRONG!! not only were people rude,... More

The concert was excellent and we had a lot of fun. We got there plenty early so we didn't have to worry too much about the crowd because it is always difficult to find a restroom or drink when it gets close to show time. An hour prior, the bathroom lines were over 30 minutes and got worse as is... More

This was a very disappointing excursion. We got tickets in the grass. Don’t ever do this! They over sell so there really isn’t room for everyone. It is really steep and difficult to navigate. We tried to up-grade our tickets when we arrived, even though they had seats available, they would not let us spend more money to sit in... More

My husband and I visited the Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre last Sunday for the Oddball Comedy Tour. It was quite the disappointing experience. We expected traffic as other reviews have stated - but we were still amazed at how bad the traffic really was. The freeway was completely stopped with the line of cars trying to exit and get into the... More
