Just saw Black Sabbath play there. Nice amphitheater. Lots of vendors selling shirts, food and drinks. Great experience at the venue. The parking on the other hand is a pain. Due to stacked parking you can't get out unless the people around you leave. That's why I can't give it a 5 star. Otherwise it's a fun venue.

Went here a few weeks ago to watch my childhood hero band ELO come and play here for the FIRST time in their history. The venue, the sound and the surrounding is mind-blowing. I am sure it was the same for the band. There is SO much history here that you must experience a gig. An evening I shall never... More

I have been to numerous concerts at hundreds of venues in my 50 years, some seriously amazing places. This was an out of body experience!!! Came just to see my all time favorite group ELO and it did not disappoint. The fact that we upgraded to box seats really made it even more fun. We enjoyed a picnic dinner with... More

Came here after some pressure from my Hollywood resident friend, to see a band that i'd class as before my time...but they (ELO) and the LA Philharmonic and the venue itself were AMAZING! You can take your own food and drink..I think its actually a tradition to do that...which is unheard of at most venues, and from where we sat... More

What a fabulous place to attend a venue. We came from Michigan to attend Jeff Lynne's ELO concert. Acoustics were great - staff was pleasant & the variety and quality of the different food vendors was wonderful.

Terrific venue for a concert! We parked at a public lot off of Hollywood Blvd, had dinner, and walked about a mile to the venue. Pretty easy walk up to the bowl. Note...don't park at the bowl if you don't want to get stuck in the parking lot. Easy to get trapped given the way that cars are parked nose... More

We saw ELO on the weekend here. And even if we were high up in the stands the sound and the view was nothing short of spectacular. The amenities here are much better than the Santa Barbara bowl that we recently visited as well. You're still dealing with a large crow as this venue holds 18 K people and this... More

One of Los Angeles' best attractions for any concert. Outdoors, great music, great sound, and if you pick a show with them - fun fireworks. If you are far from the stage there are TV screens to see up close. The amphitheater allows for light shows which add to the fun. Be sure to bring a sweater or jacket. Beware... More
