The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles Tickets
Deep within the popular Griffith Park area of Los Angeles, California is the famous outdoor amphitheater known as The Greek Theatre. Not to be confused with The Greek Theatre in Berkeley this California Greek Theatre is a massive 5,7000 seat outdoor amphitheater that has been a popular location for many of the area’s biggest outdoor concerts. This historic theater was actually first built in 1929 making it one of the oldest amphitheaters in the area. It is currently owned by the city of Los Angeles yet was paid for in most part from a donation from Griffith J. Griffith.
Almost every year over the past decade, The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles has been awarded the honor of being the “Best Small Outdoor Venue” in the country from Pollstar Magazine. This type of recognition only echoes the sentiment felt by many living in the greater Los Angeles, California area who look to attend events at this unique setting whenever possible. Typically this venue is used for stage shows and graduation ceremonies but has also brought in several big tours including Harry Belafonte, the Dave Matthews Band, Elton John, Tina Turner and Neil Diamond. Thanks to the unique set up of this theater fans are able to see big name performers such as this in uniquely intimate settings that most other arenas cannot provide.
Although it has gone under several renovations during the past few decades The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles currently holds 5,900 for general admission. The seating at the outdoor theater was designed to give guests the experience of being inside a luxurious formal indoor theater; one of the many amenities that has made this venue such a popular attraction. As one of the most historic entertainment venues in all of Los Angeles, there is no matching the charm and appeal of this award-winning theatre. While it is only open during seasons of the year when weather permits, any person looking to see one of the cultural icons of the city of Los Angeles while experiencing a live concert up close and personal will not want to miss catching any of the concerts at this outdoor amphitheater.
