Beautiful venue. You can hear and see well from most seats. Staff very friendly. Large bathrooms that are clean. No concessions which is really odd. Lots of parking and restaurants within walking distance.

I have gone to the Segerstrom on numerous occasions and fall in love with it every time. The people are incredible, the bars well staffed. Love the fact I don't need to drive to LA for top entertainment.
