....was @ "the Greek" in 1972,"CHICAGO".I've been back many times since.There really isn't a bad seat in the whole place except way up in the front on either side.I made this "minor mistake" last time I was there for "Pretenders". It would've been better to be further back IN THE MIDDLE than up front on the side [for lots of reasons].All in all , never been to a bad show there but sometimes bands are requested to "shut it down @ 11pm".Pretenders played until 11:30,but that's very rare.This might have been their "final tour" so I don't think they cared.It was EPIC,they played EVERY GOOD SONG [lots n' lots ! !] except "Brass in pocket".One of the top 3 concerts of my life..... [Chrissy "ROCKS" !! ...should've been in R & R Hall of Fame, YEARS AGO !]
ps this was in 2010

The " Greek" is one of those places that every time you get to hear a concert there, you marvel how cool a place it is. The stage is visible from just about every angle, even the so called cheap seats. Sound is right on and crisp. You can actually hear the instruments without distortion. Parking is a bit funky and expensive but it's ok if you just stay calm. The parking crew knows how to handle the car load. The food venues while not outstanding still are ok considering you come for the music , not gourmet treats.
I do not get to the Greek too often but love it when I do. The best spot for live music in LA.

We came from out of town to see a concert here and I would love to go back. There is not a bad seat in this venue and the sound is fantastic. It's so great to be surrounded by the trees. You forget you are just minutes from one of the biggest cities in the U.S.

I love the Greek Theatre! The sound is great for an outdoor venue, almost evey seat in the house offers a good view of the stage, and it's fun being surrounded by Griffith Park..The tandum parking is no fun, and it can be difficult to walk in the dirt with your high heels on. Aside from that, this is my favorite place to see a concert.

Had a great night with David Gray at THE GREEK. Fantastic venue. Not a bad seat in the place. The sound is album quality.
